Tampa, FL – The northbound I-275 ramp (Exit 47B) to westbound Hillsborough Avenue will close nightly from 11 p.m. to 6 a.m. on Sunday and Monday (August 7 and 8), weather permitting.

During these nightly closures, northbound motorists will exit I-275 using Exit 50, turn west onto Busch Boulevard (SR 580), re-enter the interstate using the southbound I-275 entrance ramp, and continue south on I-275 towards Exit 47 (Hillsborough Avenue).

In addition, all motorists traveling on Hillsborough Avenue between I-275 and Nebraska Avenue will detour around the work zone using Nebraska Avenue, Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, and Florida Avenue to Hillsborough Avenue. Access to and from other I-275 ramps will remain open during these closures. 

Advanced warning signs and electronic message boards will assist motorists traveling through the area. Motorists should expect delays and congestion during these detours.
