Water main break closes roads in Largo

LARGO — Parts of Seminole Boulevard and 8th Avenue SE will be closed through Thursday evening due to a water main break, according to Pinellas County Utilities.

An underground water main leak caused parts of the roads to collapse Wednesday morning, according to Leroy Anderson, utilities maintenance supervisor for Pinellas County. About 10 properties in the area experienced interruptions in water service.

Authorities closed several hundred feet of one lane of Seminole Boulevard south of the intersection with 8th Avenue by 10:30 a.m. A similar length of 8th Avenue SE was closed east of the intersection. The roads will likely remain closed until late Thursday, Anderson said, until the leak is repaired and the asphalt replaced.
