Tampa, FL (Friday, June 7, 2019) – South Manhattan Avenue will be temporarily and intermittently closed between West Estrella Street and West Watrous Avenue in approximately 400 linear feet sections from Monday, June 17, 2019 through Monday, September 23, 2019 as part of the Upper Peninsula Stormwater Capital Improvement Project.


A City contractor will be installing an 8’ x 5’ stormwater box culvert, relocating an 8” water main, and 8”sanitary sewer line, and storm inlets along South Manhattan Avenue from West Estrella Street to West Watrous Avenue.

Any resident who is blocked from vehicular access to their home, transportation will be available to and from their vehicle by a security guard in a golf cart that will be stationed on South Manhattan Avenue. A sidewalk detour will be in place during the duration of the work. The road will be restored and sidewalk pattern will be returned to normal prior to the end of the closure.
