Crews Working to Fix Evansville Sinkhole


A large sinkhole has appeared on a busy Evansville road.

The hole is located near the intersection of Walnut St. and New York Ave. right next to D-Patrick Ford.

The Evansville Water and Sewer Utility was called to the scene Tuesday morning.

Workers were digging out the hole – working on a leaking storm drain.

The water department hopes to have it all fixed up by Tuesday evening.

New York Ave. is closed at the intersection and one lane is closed on Walnut.
