8th Street reopened after sewer repair

Apr. 10, 2013 @ 11:00 PM

HUNTINGTON -- Eighth Street in downtown Huntington reopened Wednesday evening, two days after a collapsed sewer line forced its closure.

The Huntington Sanitary Board repaired the sanitary sewer line and filled in the sinkhole, which measured three feet by three feet and was four feet deep, Mayor Steve Williams said.

A prior sinkhole in the same area prompted the closing of 8th Street between 5th and 6th Avenues in January 2012.
