Sinkhole Closes Road in Morganton 6/20/2013 5:03:54 PM
The City of Morganton has closed South Meadow Drive to through traffic due to a developing sinkhole under the road.
City Engineer Mark Young said that a stream has washed away soil around a culvert under the road. As more and more soil has been washed away, the road has started to dip, creating a hazard for drivers.
Young says repairs will be made as quickly as possible, but it will likely take a few days to complete the job. Until then, residents who live on South Meadow Drive can access their homes via London Street or Dellwood Drive.
