A failed storm drain that caused a sinkhole on Princess View Drive near Fontaine Street in Allied Gardens in January appears to be the cause of yet another sinkhole in the neighborhood.
On Jan. 10, residents noticed a dip forming in the street a couple of days before the street gave in. City crews had the street repaired in about a week.
On Mar. 4 the Mission Times Courier learned a sinkhole appeared in the same area where the previous sinkhole was filled.
The Mission Times Courier hasn’t been able to reach City officials for comment. In early February, City spokesman Bill Harris said the storm drain repair is lower on the City’s priority list since crews have faced an unusually high number of repairs following the heavy December rains but said the City hopes to begin the design phase of this project in the near future.
