Water main repairs continuing

LARGO - Two-way traffic was moving slowly on Belcher Road between East Bay Drive and Ulmerton Road as work continues to repair a 48-inch water main that ruptured on Dec. 23.

According to the latest information from Pinellas County Utilities, workers have found the source of a leak discovered after the section of old, ruptured pipe was replaced just before the New Year’s holiday.

“They are working to clear an area around it (the leak) for the workers and machinery,” said Marq Caughell, public information specialist with Pinellas County Communications.

Caughell said traffic was “being maintained and citizens are reminded to exercise caution while driving through construction zones.”

He said more information would be released as work progressed with getting the new section of pipe back into operation.

One lane in both directions on Belcher Road, between East Bay Drive and Ulmerton Road, was opened Thursday afternoon. Officials expect to maintain through traffic for the duration of the repair work.

The damaged section of the 48-inch pipe was removed and the replacement section installed before the weekend. However, during pressure testing of the new section, a leak was discovered that prevented repairs from being fully completed before the weekend.

Water service was restored to all customers via temporary water connections and there are no active or anticipated boil water warnings.
