Palm Beach County siinkhole

Workers begin to repair a large sinkhole at the intersection of Blue Heron Blvd. and Avenue F caused by a broken water main Oct. 11th, 2007. Work was being done at the intersection when the main was first damaged by a subcontractor for Florida Power & Light. City crews made a temporary repair at that time. The main then broke again Wednesday afternoon, causing a hole 15 to 20 feet wide and more than three feet deep, swallowing a car in the process. Blue Heron Blvd. will be closed in both directions until repairs are completed.
