TAMPA, Fla. (970 WFLA) - The northbound I-275 exit ramp to Lois Avenue (exit 40b) closed at 10:45 p.m. Monday (June 30) and will stay closed for 12 days.

Here’s the detour: Motorists are advised to use exit 39a to Kennedy Boulevard to access areas west of Dale Mabry Highway, or use the Dale Mabry (exit 41a) or Armenia Avenue (exit 42) exits for areas east of Dale Mabry.

The closure is needed in preparation for a major shift of the northbound I-275 mainline lanes on or near July 13. Near the end of the 12-day period, there will also be a two-day closure of the northbound I-275 exit ramp to Dale Mabry Highway and an overnight closure of the west shore boulevard entrance ramp onto northbound I-275.
