Road Closure: Northwood Palms Blvd. Emergency Sewer Repair

~~Local residents use Breakers Drive detour, all others should use Bruce B. Downs Blvd.~~
(May 3, 2019)

WESLEY CHAPEL, FL  ----  The Pasco County Utilities (PCU) Operations and Maintenance Department (O&M) is actively working to address an emergency repair of a sewer main along Northwood Palms Boulevard.  To ensure safety while the required repairs are made, Northwood Palms Boulevard will be closed to thru traffic.  All local, residential traffic will be diverted through Breakers Drive.

Repairs are estimated to take four months.  Every effort is being made to expedite this emergency project by dedicating field crews to work 12-hour shifts.  We apologize for the inconvenience.

  •  Local Residents: Breakers Drive is the only available option through the neighborhood during the road closure.  
  • General Motorists:  Those traveling on E. County Line Rd. or FL-56 should use Bruce B. Downs Boulevard as an alternative option during the road closure. 

 The issue was discovered during a routine inspection of the wastewater (sewer) collection system.  O&M field crews determined the existing sewer main was in extremely poor condition.  The leaking pipe compromised the roadway on Northwood Palms Boulevard above the main, forcing its closure.   

PCU has a long-standing mission to support customers and provide high quality water, wastewater, reclaimed water and solid waste services.
