WYANDOTTE — Municipal Services is investigating a sinkhole in the parking lot of City Hall/Chase Bank, that could put residents and workers at risk should it cave in.
“It’s creating a void under the surface of the parking lot,” Assistant City Engineer Greg Mayhew said. He estimates there might be a connection between the old storm line on Second Street and the problem arising in the parking lot.
In order to solve the problem workers have dug a trench about 10 feet long, 2 feet wide and 4 feet deep in the boulevard that divides the parking area. Mayhew said he hopes the investigation “only takes a couple of days.”
