Sinkhole Updates

Crews are continuing to work on emergency repairs to utility lines and roadways caused by sinkholes along Hayes Drive, but it will be weeks before the projects are completed. Expect continued traffic delays in both areas.
At Hayes and Bluemont Avenue, near Walmart and Staples, telecommunication lines are being moved away from repair work while plans to relocate sewer mains are reviewed. Replacement of damaged sewer mains will proceed immediately, but the area requires a significant amount of groundwater in the area and completion is several weeks away. Additional barricades have been put in place to prevent vehicles from driving around the construction site on private property.

Transfer pumps are now in operation at the site located near Hayes and Levee Drive, where a sinkhole opened up during overnight storms last week. Nearby businesses are receiving support while they operate without running water. Vegetation has been cleared and stop signs have been put in place along Levee Drive to improve continued traffic along the gravel road.

Information will be shared as it becomes available. Reduce speed when traveling in the area and do not drive around barricades.
