Work continues to repair Roswell sinkhole

November 14, 2017 by  

A sinkhole on Highway 9 in Roswell has reopened, and work to repair it is due to finish today.

The sinkhole was caused when a storm drain about 20 feet beneath the road rusted through and collapsed. The Georgia Department of Transportation and the city’s Transportation Department are working together to make certain the work is done safely and properly. The sinkhole is between Oxbo Road and Oak Street.

One lane will be open each direction during the repairs, but officials suggest drivers find alternate routes if at all possible, since Highway 9 will not be able to carry as much traffic as usual.

Repairs will entail constructing a new pipeline to pass beneath the road, in addition to building the structures associated with it on either side of the thoroughfare. The work should be finished today, depending on the weather.

In general, sinkholes usually form when an underground void appears, creating a depression that drains everything near it. In this particular case, the water pipe collapsed and earth filled the space created when the pipe crumpled. Water from the pipe saturated the soil, further weighing it down, while a cavity formed on top of the pipe and expanded upward until it reached the surface.

When incidents like this occur, officials can work with a flyer printing company to create a mailer for residents warning them of the danger and suggesting alternative routes.
