Water main break closes portion of Diplomat Parkway
A 12-inch water main break in the 1600 block of Diplomat Parkway East has closed a section of two westbound lanes near the intersection of Del Prado Boulevard. The line break occurred just north of the car wash at 1618 Diplomat Parkway causing damage to a 50-foot section of the westbound turn lane for northbound Del Prado and the adjacent westbound travel lane.
This section of both lanes will be closed until pavement restoration can be completed, which may not occur for several days.
Drivers will be directed to merge to the center westbound travel lane for the length of the damaged area and then will be able to return to the lanes after passing the blocked section. Traffic flow on westbound Diplomat will not be impacted at the intersection of Del Prado.
