(Pioneer Press: Jean Pieri) Work crews have at least two more months of sewer and street repair ahead of them near the intersection where a giant sinkhole had opened up on the East Side.

In addition to the 30-foot-long sewer break, crews soon discovered that 2,000 feet of sewer to the north and south showed various degrees of corrosion. About 150 feet of sewer at the sinkhole site has been replaced, according to the report to property owners, and another 380 feet has been outfitted with a new lining. Over the next two months, crews will install a temporary wastewater pump and piping system along the west side of Prosperity Avenue from Magnolia Avenue to the railroad tracks south of Ames Avenue. The temporary pipe will move wastewater past the area being repaired. The existing pipe under Prosperity will receive a new lining. Crews will install a new manhole in front of 1008 Prosperity Ave., which is closed to traffic. Residents to the north can reach their homes from Magnolia, and those to the south have access from Ames. Crews will also be cleaning sinkhole […]
