ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

A sinkhole formed at 24th SW and SW Kenyon on Feb. 20 that briefly trapped a recycling truck and brought out crews from Seattle Public Utilities to cordon off the area and begin addressing the problem.

The hole is approximately 7 feet across and 4 to 5 feet deep.

SPU Crew members on site pumped out the water that had filled it and said they were not sure of the cause, suggesting that it could be a broken pipe further up the street. They will check up Kenyon Street to make sure then the hole will be backfilled with mixture of concrete and rock. The process could take up to a week to fix.
Until then the area will be marked off and monitored by SPU crew members.
