Traffic shift for scheduled Water Main Repairs
St. Petersburg, Fla. (July 26, 2018) – Due to construction activities at and near the intersection of 54th Avenue South between 34th Street South and 31st South, there will be intermittent lane shifts in the eastbound travel lane(s) from 8 am through 4 pm on Tuesday, July 31, 2018.
This modification of traffic has been requested through St. Petersburg Water Resources in order investigate and make repairs to a potable water line beneath the street surface. It is not clear at this point exactly where the repair work will take place, so drivers should be alert to any potential lane shifts.
This is typically a very busy traffic area as drivers from both US 19 (34th Street) and those exiting the Interstate (I-275) will be impacted. While detours and modification of traffic patterns will be fully signed, the City of St. Petersburg recommends that drivers find an alternative route during the construction times.
