Southbound Armenia Ave. closed at St. Joseph St. after road collapse

TAMPA - A giant hole opened under Armenia Avenue early Thursday morning near the intersection of  W. St. Joseph Street (one block south of Columbus Drive).

Tampa Police said it appears a large water pipe ruptured causing the road to collapse.  The depression measures 40 feet by 15 feet.

All traffic southbound from Columbus Dr. will be diverted, at least throughout the weekend.  

Repairs will take a couple of days, and the road may reopen Monday afternoon.
