Water main leak closes part of McMullen-Booth Road
A leak in a water main Tuesday led authorities to close the southbound lanes of McMullen-Booth Road between Curlew and Tampa roads.
The road will remain closed for several days while repairs are made, Pinellas County officials said. A contractor discovered the leak and determined it came from a drinking water line. Authorities do not anticipate any disruption in water service.
During repairs, southbound traffic will be diverted to Tampa Road, then west to U.S. 19 and south to Curlew Road. Officials advise motorists to avoid the area if possible while the water main is repaired.
