CLEARWATER - Pinellas County Public Works’ crews are on the scene of a shallow depression that developed this morning, July 26, along the eastern side of Old Coachman Road, just south of Coachman Road, in Clearwater.
The depression is approximately 4 feet wide, 4 feet long and 1 1/2 feet deep. Crews are locating nearby underground utilities before proceeding with repairs.
Crews also tested the substrate beneath the nearby roadway surface and the area of the depression and determined that it is solid and not indicative of a sinkhole.
The southbound lane of Old Coachman Road is open to traffic. The northbound lane is closed in the area where the repair work is underway, but crews are assisting passage of northbound traffic by alternating flow in both directions.
Crews have advised that repairs are expected to be completed this afternoon.
