TAMPA, Fla. - North Bayshore Blvd. has reopened between S. Rome Ave. and W. Swann Ave. after briefly closing Wednesday afternoon due to potential flooding from high tide and high winds from Elsa, according to the Tampa Police Department.
Bayshore is one of the areas officials always watch very closely, along with Dale Mabry and South Tampa, the areas that often flood when it rains. However, the flood-prone street was relatively dry Tuesday night ahead of Hurricane Elsa. The road was also dry shortly after noon on Wednesday but police closed it for about two hours as a precaution.
