Officials with Public Works say they have teams "televising the line leading up to this area to get a final diagnostic on what needs to be done."

Officials say work would continue over the weekend, or Monday, March 4, on the sinkhole. The work would depend on the severity of the issue and the surrounding impact.

The work will be done by emergency sewer repair contractors.


Drivers are reporting a massive sinkhole on E. 15th Street in Davenport between Arlington and Bridge Avenues.

The street is a one-way heading West toward Brady Street. Drivers reported a large hole in the road, roughly 3-feet by 5-feet. A closer look inside the hole reveals a deeper problem, roughly 15-feet deep.
