Description

The depression in the roadway is 27 inches ( north south) by 24 inches ( east west) it is 4 inches deep at its deepest point: The depression is in the middle of the roadway, so it’s not caused by traffic: Last year the city ran a new water main under the street to 162, the depression lines up exactly with where they shot the new line. There is a blue paint mark in the pavement pointing in the direction of where they shot the new water line. Three daye ago I reported this to the City if St Petersburg Water Resources department, they said they would send out a crew. Haven’t seen any crew, haven’t heard a word from them. My neighbor reported this to the mayors action committee months ago, nothing has been done. It’s not just a matter of filling in the depression with some asphalt, the right people need to investigate the conditions of what’s under the roadway and determine whether there is a sinkhole developing.
