ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — A street in St. Petersburg is closed in all directions because of a depression in the road caused by a broken water pipe, police say.

St. Petersburg police tweeted the traffic alert Thursday afternoon. The intersection is shut down at 83rd Avenue North and 7th Street North.

One westbound lane of 83rd Avenue will be closed for about two weeks for repairs, the mayor's office said. 

Police are asking drivers to avoid the area.
