Southbound commuters on Interstate 275 in downtown Tampa will need to leave a few extra minutes to get to their destinations.

The roadway will be closed, and traffic will be detoured at the Hillsborough River on Saturday and Sunday from 12:30-4:30 a.m., according to the Florida Department of Transportation.

Traffic will be detoured off at Exit 45A and directed south on Ashley Drive. Drivers will turn right onto Kennedy Boulevard, right onto Howard Avenue, then access I-275 from the Armenia Avenue ramp.

Motorists may experience backups on southbound I-275 and westbound I-4 during these times, officials say.
