Water Main Work Scheduled Along Bayshore Boulevard
St. Petersburg, Fla. (August 28, 2018) -- Drivers along portions of Bayshore Boulevard and nearby streets between Overlook Drive and Arizona Avenue may face temporary delays or detours due to water main work beginning September 4, 2018.
Crews from St. Petersburg Water Resources will be working to replace water mains in the region – with the construction area including Bayshore Boulevard NE from Bayshore Boulevard NE from Overlook Drive to Arizona Avenue NE and along Arkansas and Arizona Avenues between Bayshore and Overlook Drive NE. The construction – expected to take six to ten weeks – will use horizontal boring to minimize traffic disruptions, but there could be some local delays.
Individual residents in the construction area have been notified by letter -- as it may be necessary to interrupt potable (drinking) water service for short periods of time. Crews will notify those directly affected prior to any shutdown.
