Tampa, FL April 3, 2017 The Tampa-Hillsborough Expressway Authority (THEA), in conjunction with the City of Tampa, is working to make Meridian Avenue a safer road for pedestrians and bicyclists. In addition to the sidewalk and median work, we will also resurface Meridian Avenue beginning Wednesday, April 5, 2017. Resurfacing operations will take place from 8 pm to 5 am Sunday through Thursday. We will work around the Tampa Bay Lighting schedule.
This will be a moving operation to complete the project with periodic lane closures possible. No driveways will be blocked for any appreciable time.
Safety is the most important aspect of the project. Please work with us in respecting all signs and construction zones, as well as driving at the posted speed. Avoid contact with the hot asphalt when on foot, bikes, or rollerblades until the surface has cooled, typically 4-6 hours.
The expected completion of the project is around April 16, 2017. Weather and unforeseen circumstance may influence the progress of work.
