TAMPA, Fla. (970 WFLA) – The northbound lanes of S. Dale Mabry Hwy at Ballast Point Blvd are closed for a water main break that happened Monday night.

The road has since buckled several inches in the air since the break and repairs could take until the end of the week to complete.

It’s not clear how many people are without water.

There is a detour at Ballast Point Blvd to Himes to Gandy Blvd. TPD says expect traffic delays until issue resolved. 

There’s another water main break at Ashley Drive and Tyler Street.

The two outer southbound lanes on Ashley Drive and westbound lanes on Tyler Street from Ashley to Macinnes Place are closed while the Tampa Water Department repairs a 12-inch transmission line break. 

Drivers should seek alternate routes. Please use caution when traveling in the area.

Water department crews are at the site assessing the situation.
