NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — It could take crews longer than first thought to fix the sinkhole on Colley Avenue.
A Norfolk public works spokesman said the soil eroded down into a 12-inch sewer pipe, and that’s what caused the initial problem. The pipe still works, but crews need to fix it to prevent further soil erosion.
The city has hired a contractor to fix the problem. The road should re-open by the end of the week.
The sinkhole is located near Brambleton Avenue in the Fort Norfolk Section of the city.
