CLEARWATER, Fla. — A water main break has caused flooding in the area of U.S. 19 and Belleair, Clearwater Fire Rescue says.
Just before 8 p.m. Friday, the department tweeted a photo of the flooding, cautioning people to avoid the area of "the southbound service road and Belleair west of the intersection." Crews have shut down that area to work on the broken line.
"Beware of flooding in the area of U.S. 19 and Belleair because of a water main break. The southbound service road and Belleair west of the intersection are shut down as work is being done on the broken line. Avoid those areas."
The southbound lanes of the access road and Belleair Rd. west of U.S. 19 are shut down due to the high water in the area. Crews say U.S. 19 is not impacted by the closures.
