Park Boulevard sewer main break repairs under way

The Pinellas County Department of Environment and Infrastructure is preparing a bypass plan for repairs of the sewer main break on Park Boulevard, east of Seminole Boulevard, that occurred late last night (July 2). Crews continue to focus on securing the open hole by installing a plate over the exposed area to protect the public.

Traffic is being affected by the activity in the area. The south (east bound) lane is currently closed. Once the bypass plan is implemented, additional lane closures are anticipated. Repair efforts include the adjacent curbing, pavement and sidewalk impacted by the pipe failure. Repair completion is expected to take up to three weeks.

Suggested detours for commuters are Seminole Boulevard, Starkey Road/Park Street or 102nd Avenue North/Bryan Dairy Road.

No significant impact is anticipated on local businesses in the vicinity and businesses should continue to be accessible to customers. Additional updates will be provided as additional information is gathered by field staff and contractors assisting with the repair.
