Burst pipe closes Tampa's N Armenia Avenue near Columbus Drive

TAMPA — An underground water pipe burst Thursday morning, creating a muddy hole in the middle of N Armenia Avenue south of Columbus Drive.

The area is expected to remain closed through the weekend, blocking a busy route for drivers headed to Interstate 275.

The hole was about 15 feet wide. It opened in the block between Columbus and W St. Joseph Street.

The Tampa Water Department blocked all traffic on N Armenia Avenue, a one-way street, near Columbus Drive.

Police said repairs are expected to be completed by 3:30 p.m., but restoration to normal traffic patterns won't be completed before Monday afternoon.
