CENTRAL WATER MAIN BREAK UPDATE - THURS PM
St. Petersburg Fire and Rescue provided an update to the water main break earlier today. Vehicular traffic is asked to avoid the area as Central Avenue remains closed between Sixth and Seventh Streets until tomorrow. Traffic is being detoured to First Avenues North and South in the 600 block of Central. Seventh Street between Central and First Avenue South will remain closed indefinitely until repairs are made to the affected structure and to the water main which will be rerouted. Water and power have been restored to the area for the exception of the structure on the southeast corner of Central and Seventh Street.
