If your commute includes Westshore Boulevard, take note of an upcoming road closure.

Westshore from W. Bay Way Drive to Beachway Drive will close on May 11 and reopen in July as part of the Watrous Canal Rehabilitation Project. A city contractor will be replacing utilities and a box culvert.

Beachway will be closed between Westshore and S. Roxmere Road, according to a news release from the City of Tampa.

Pedestrians will be able to use one side of Westshore at all times.

City officials recommend using alternative routes northbound and southbound.

A map is attached with a detour suggestion.
