Mt. Vernon became the latest sinkhole zone when the roadway collapsed on Centre St. in April. The work goes on two months later and is expected to take another month.
According to Baltimore DPW, the cause was traced to a 72 inch sewer line, which had a hole in the top. The 100 year old line failed twice before, in 1997 and 2012.
Crews are in the midst of cleaning the pipe, which requires a small bobcat. That task should be done next week, the DPW said. Then, they must fix the hole. BGE is also slated to perform work before it is paved over.
