Road Depression Closes 34th Street in St. Petersburg

Crews were able to locate and repair a box culvert about six feet below the street surface, while also sealing the depression under the roadway with flowable fill.

Because of the time required to cure the fill material and then re-grade and patch the asphalt road surface, two lanes of southbound 34th Street (US 19) will remain closed to traffic from 3rd to 5th Avenue South through the evening rush-hour.
Repairs are expected to be completed and the roadway will be ready to for full vehicular use by 8 p.m.
