TAMPA — After a week of detours, drivers can once again use the intersection at Gandy and Bayshore boulevards.
The South Tampa intersection opened Monday morning after being closed for a week because of a water main break, said Elias Franco, a spokesman for the Tampa Water Department.
The 12-inch main was fixed Wednesday evening, but crew members had to dig a wide hole about 15 feet deep to get to it. The resulting road reconstruction delayed the reopening.
Left Coast Utility, a company contracted by Bright House Networks, was laying cables May 9 at the intersection when a drill hit a pipe, breaking the water main and a storm drain.
