A portion of S Beneficial Drive from Channelside Drive to Knights Run Avenue closed on Monday, October 15, 2018, for sidewalk construction. The City permit to install a temporary sidewalk on the west side of S Beneficial Drive from Channelside Drive to the Tampa History Center has been extended. One (1) southbound lane on S Beneficial Drive from Channelside Drive to the Tampa History Center closed daily between 9 am and 4 pm.

One (1) southbound lane on S Beneficial Drive from Channelside Drive to the Tampa History Center will be maintained during construction, with delays.

Pedestrian access will be maintained on the east side of S Beneficial Drive at all times during construction.
