DC Water spokeswoman Pamela Mooring told the Washington City Paper on Tuesday afternoon that the 15-foot-deep sinkhole at the intersection at 14th and F streets NW was caused when a piece of concrete broke through a sewer line.
“The concrete fell and broke our sewer line, and that compromised all the soil around it,” Mooring told the City Paper.
As of about 6:45 p.m. on Tuesday, streets were still closed. And police did not seem optimistic that traffic would flow freely again soon.
A few D.C. residents and news crews were able to capture shots of the sinkhole as they made their way into the city this morning:
Although the D.C. Police Department confirmed that it would most likely take up to 2 days for clean up crews to fix the problem, thankfully, emergency crews were able to respond before anyone got hurt this time.
