Update: March 1, 2017

Easternmost lane of U.S. 19 remains closed for sewer repair

Pinellas County Utilities crews continue repair work on an 8-inch sewer gravity line that caused a roadway depression which closed the easternmost travel lane of U.S. Highway 19, just North of Curlew Road in Palm Harbor. Work at the scene could last up to several weeks.

To repair the broken section of the gravity line, crews must install a bypass where the line broke and then repair the damaged section of pipe. The lane will remain closed depending on the condition of the entire line and how long it will take to repair.
