City officials in Hughson are exploring options for a permanent fix of a sink hole that collapsed a portion of Tully Road just north of Rolland Starn Park Tuesday evening.
The collapse was caused by a sewer line that failed near Varni Lane. The result was a large sized hole in the asphalt.
The sink hole was reported before any pedestrians or cars fell into it. Public Works crews and workers from D.A. Wood Construction worked into the evening trying to make the necessary repair of the collapsed sewer line but a closer assessment revealed the line was severely deteriorated and the work was halted.
“The exposed roadway was filled and metal plates were installed to allow traffic through,” the city of Hughson noted on its Facebook page on Wednesday. “Please continue to use caution while driving through the area.”
An interim repair was being made to ensure there is no disruption in sewer service.
