Sinkhole repair: Getting the job done

Repair work on Washington Boulevard is seen through the new culvert waiting to be installed.
 A sinkhole 5 feet deep caused by a dilapidated culvert had crews working quickly Tuesday and Wednesday. The Del Norte County Roads Division closed the west end of Washington Boulevard for two days to dig out the old culvert and install the new, deftly avoiding a phone line and two water mains — one of which turned out to be abandoned. A few hours ahead of schedule, the freshly paved section of road was open to traffic Wednesday afternoon. “We want to inconvenience the public as little as possible,” said Roads Superintendent Jeff Daniels. Happy to report the job was done, he said the division was keeping an eye out for the next culprit culvert threatening collapse. 
Water is pumped out of the existing culvert.
