Sinkhole develops in Greenfield traffic / road construction area

The Greenfield Police Department has issued the following regarding a traffic situation that has developed in a construction zone on the city's south side:

 

A sinkhole has opened up in the 800 block of South State Street at the entrance of the Waste Water treatment plant. This section of the street is already under a "soft closure" due to the ongoing construction, but it will now become a "hard closure."

 

No traffic will be able to get through this section of the street. For reference, this is in front of the old Florida Cracker restaurant. The street will be closed at this location only.

 

If you live between Tague Street and the Florida Cracker, you will be able to use Tague Street to get to State Street. You will also be able to access the cemetery and all businesses within that section from Tague Street.

 

This hard closure is expected to last until at least Friday afternoon.
