The SESHFRP is occurring in multiple locations at once in order to meet the City’s 40-month construction schedule; sequential construction would take 6-7 years to complete.
The project team shared the map graphic shown below and corresponding anticipated construction dates. Areas shown in purple are currently under construction. Work has recently started in the areas shown in orange, and work on Florida Avenue, shown in pink, is scheduled to begin Aug. 22. The dates shown below are subject to change due to inclement weather or other unforeseen conditions.

A real pain in the ass, but it has to be done.

Thank you for posting this. I'm a visual person so seeing it mapped out like this is very helpful.

I don't see the green/blue secondary streets on the key (10th st, 12th st, Louisiana, New Orleans, etc). What do those colors denote?

Once every hundred years or so

Will there be simultaneous blockages on Highland? It's not on the map Thanks for sharing this!

Someone had asked a question about the legend colors in SESH construction. Here is the answer from the project team: The blue lines are where water mains only are being installed. The green lines are where stormwater culverts and miscellaneous are being installed. The base map without the added construction zone information is found on the website at Southeast Seminole Heights Flood Relief Project Map and Benefits (seminoleheightsstormwater.com), and the base map legend is there.

Construction on Central North of Hillsborough Rescheduled

David Nelson Construction, with input from the City of Tampa’s Mobility Department, has rescheduled construction on North Central Avenue north of Hillsborough Avenue. Work in this area will now begin in late 2022. The change was made to avoid overlap with the upcoming Florida Avenue closure, currently scheduled to begin in late August. Nelson and the City agreed that rescheduling the work would lessen traffic impacts for residents. The project team will post schedule updates in advance of the start of work.

I hadn’t seen that they were closing Florida Ave. Can you advise dates and locations? This is a big deal with our commute. I would very much appreciate any additional info!

whoa whoa whoa ... "upcoming Florida Avenue closure?" 😳

This project is a complete disaster with poor construction management.

Can they move the giant concrete boxes they staged then on central? Blocks visibility when trying to turn on to central

“Lessen traffic”? This is hilarious

Maybe they can close highland too and then we’ll all be screwed…. Really stupid

Nice timing with school back in session

3 weeks......just like Crest was paved in July. 🙄🙄🙄 This whole project has just been one GIANT clusterf@#$. Arent there any kind of penalties for missed deadlines? I feel for those businesses and homes in the area.

This project. SMH. I worked on a half a billion dollar bridge project that was done quicker than this will be.

Can they put a pedestrian crosswalk near Front Porch and FLocale while they’re at it?!

Massive waste of money and resources. So blatant it should be called what it is; corruption. Why are we spending billions to move all of this traffic through Tampa and across the bay, when we could move it for way less cost across undeveloped Pasco? FDOT should be building the missing highway across the northern bay area linking I-75 directly to west Pasco and Pinellas, rather than keep forcing all of that traffic to go the long way through Tampa's urban core. But this is no accident. FDOT is funneling as much traffic as possible onto this highway through Tampa, so that they can use that as justification to keep destroying urban Tampa for a wider highway. It costs dramatically more to widen a bridge across the bay and a highway through the urban core, than it would cost to build a highway on flat ground through rural and suburban areas, and that's what matters to FDOT. Most cost = more budget = more job security and income for themselves and their cronies.

After 12 years, it's time for Florida Avenue Brewing Co to return to the neighborhood where it all started, in Seminole Heights! After Brew Bus Brewing acquired Florida Avenue Brewing Co. in 2015, it's been our dream to re-launch our beloved brand back onto Florida Avenue. We are excited to share that we are expanding and opening a second Florida Avenue Brewing Co. location in Seminole Heights, featuring the beers you know and love from Brew Bus and Florida Avenue.
Although Brew Bus Brewing closed its Taproom in 2021, our crew has since been steadily maintaining and safeguarding our mission and products in Wesley Chapel at our destination brewery! We invite our former Brew Bus regulars and our new neighbors in Seminole Heights to follow along on this journey as we prepare to bring Florida Avenue Brewing Co. back to its roots this fall, on the corner of Chelsea and Florida!
