City crews to investigate sinkhole at Knapp and Capital

sinkhole spots

Beginning Tuesday, May 17, city crews will be shutting down sections of Knapp Dr. and Minges Rd. to investigate an ongoing sinkhole. 

The city will close Knapp Dr. at Capital Ave., along with Minges Rd. at Watkins Rd., to study this sinkhole. Vehicular traffic in the area should be aware of construction activity and follow posted signs and flagger instructions. Emergency vehicles and thru traffic will not have access.

There will also be a lane shift of the outside southbound lane on Capital Ave., about 50ft before the intersection at Knapp Dr. 

These areas will be closed beginning Tuesday, May 17, and will remain closed until further notice. Work will take place from approximately 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. 

 We appreciate everyone’s patience during this and all work.
