A portion of North Howard Avenue was closed to traffic Wednesday due to a water main break.
The northbound lane of Howard is closed from West St. Joseph Street to West Columbus Drive. The right turn lane onto West Columbus is also closed.
Drivers in the area are asked to use alternate routes and use caution when traveling in the area.
The Tampa Water department expects restoration work to be completed by 3 p.m. Thursday with a return to normal traffic patterns, weather permitting.
