Taylor Road Drainage Improvements


The purpose of the proposed stormwater improvement project is to alleviate flooding on a section of Taylor Road in Thonotosassa. The project will install a new stormwater drainage system along Taylor Road/Fort King Highway between Tuckaway Drive and the Thonotosassa Church of God. The project will also construct a new stormwater retention area on vacant County-owned property located at the northwest corner of Main Street and Taylor Road.

What to Expect

  • Construction will take place on weekdays between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.
  • The work will involve heavy equipment and excavation, and will generate normal construction noise
  • Access to homes will be maintained throughout construction
  • In some areas, traffic lane closures may be necessary
  • For the safety of the workers, pedestrians and other motorists, please observe all traffic control measures
  • All construction will be within the public right of way, easements and temporary construction easements
  • All areas affected by the construction will be restored
  • Excavation work can sometimes cause an accidental water pipeline break or similar problem
    • Should any water service interruption occur, instructions for a precautionary boil water notice will be issued by Hillsborough County and service will be restored as quickly as possible
