HUNTINGTON - The Huntington Water Quality Board will begin repairs to a sewer main collapse at 9th Street and 3rd Avenue on Thursday morning, Jan. 3.
At that time, 9th Street, from 4 1/2 Alley to 3rd Avenue, will be closed to traffic. Third Avenue will remain open to traffic in both directions but will divert off the 9th Street intersection.
Conditions may change and additional lane closures may become necessary once excavations begin for line repair.
Sometime between Dec. 21 and Dec. 23, a sinkhole formed near a manhole at the intersection of 9th Street and 3rd Avenue.
The hole was temporarily patched with steel plates. Crews will replace the entire line, which is made of brick, with plastic piping.
