Water main break forces Tampa road closure

TAMPA — A broken water main closed the area around Osborne Avenue E near Suwanee Avenue N early Tuesday, forcing city and school buses to divert their routes.

The area was expected to be closed for most of the day.

A water main break was discovered about 4:45 a.m. on Osborne Avenue E about 50 feet east of Suwanee Avenue N.

Only a small amount of water was coming out of the pipe, but it was unclear how long it would take to repair the pipe, police said.

Buses heading to Hillsborough High School and Memorial Middle School were diverted from their normal traffic routes.
