Sinkhole Grows In Downtown Sioux Falls

Mention the term sinkhole and most people expect the location would be in Florida or Louisiana.

Now you can add downtown Sioux Falls to the list.

A sinkhole sprouted last Friday just south of the intersection of 14th Street and Phillips Avenue and it's been growing ever since. The pit now warrants construction barriers and a roadblock.

Public Works Director Mark Cotter says the issue is connected to a failure in the pipe connecting the private property to the city's main sewer pipes under Phillips Avenue. He adds that fixing the problem could last through Friday.
