Crews to repair large sink hole on street in Troy
TROY, N.Y. >> Crews will be working to repair a large sink hole in a street in an upstate New York city where another infrastructure failure last month cut off the water supply to nearby communities.
Officials in Troy believe the pavement gave way after a sewer line collapsed under Campbell Avenue early Sunday. The street remains closed as workers plan to use a camera Monday to get a better look at the damage below ground in an effort to determine what repairs need to be made.
The sink hole repairs come five weeks after water main break in another Troy neighborhood sent millions of gallons of water flowing onto a street. The break in the century-old cast-iron pipe shut off water supplies for two nearby towns in neighboring Saratoga County.
