Attention, drivers: Northbound I-275 traffic will be detoured tonight, according to the Florida Department of Transportation.

Traffic will be closed from Lois Avenue (exit 40B) to Armenia Avenue (exit 42) from 10 p.m. tonight until 5:30 a.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 9.

Detour suggestion: Use exit 40B to Lois Avenue, turning right at the bottom of the ramp to go south on Lois Avenue. Turn left and head east on Kennedy Boulevard toward Howard Avenue. Turn left onto Howard and head north to the northbound I-275 exit ramp.

Drivers who want to go northbound on I-275 from Dale Mabry or Himes Avenue will need to use another entrance, since both entrance ramps will be closed for the duration of the detour.
