North Rome Avenue Closed Between West Hillsborough Avenue and West Burke Street

This notice is archived content and this information may no longer be accurate.

North Rome Avenue is closed from West Hillsborough Avenue to West Burke Street while the Tampa Water Department repairs a water transmission main break at North Rome Avenue and West Powhattan Avenue. Barricades and signs are located in the area to assist with traffic flow and rerouting. Please use caution when driving in the area. Modifications to lane closures may be necessary during the course of restoration.


The Water Department has maintained positive pressure on the water distribution system. However, as a precaution, we are advising residents and businesses within the area of 275 to the east, Dale Mabry to the west, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard to the south and Busch to the north to boil water for drinking and food preparation. This Precautionary Boil Water Notice will remain in place for two days. The Water Department will provide updates throughout the repair period and eventual restoration of all roadways.


The staff and crews of the Tampa Water Department appreciate everyone's patience during this time.
