14th Street sinkhole could slow morning commute (again)

A sinkhole on 14th Street NW may spawn Friday morning delays.

Authorities closed a center northbound lane on 14th Street NW from Constitution to Pennsylvania avenues for the fourth day while crews repair the sinkhole, D.C. police said.

Officials previously said the 2-foot-wide and 4-foot-deep sinkhole was caused by an opening in the sewer. But according to a news release from the D.C. Water and Sewer Authority, crews excavated a large section of the road and found that the sewer pipe was in “proper working condition.”

The release said work on the sinkhole will be completed by Friday evening.
