Call 11 For Action: Sink hole in central Toledo being fixed after 3 years

TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) - A sink hole in central Toledo has been a problem for residents for more than three years.

It sits on the 2100 block of Joffre and those who live near it say it is just plain dangerous.

They say every time it rains the sink hole collects rain, making it hard to see even with a large orange barrel inside of it.

City officials say they have had the sink hole on their list to fix for a year now. They say the reason the street is sinking is because of the natural movement of the soil and that the street was installed more than 70 years ago, when the estimated lifetime for a road is about 50 years.

“It's going to cave in, that's going to be a problem and hopefully no one will be around when it does cave in because if it does someone is going to get hurt,” said west Toledo resident Marcia Scott.

Officials with the city's sewer department say they're going to be out by the end of the week to get the sink hole fixed.

If you see a pot or sink hole you can report it by calling 419-936-BUMP.
