LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. - Amid continuous showers, crews are working to repair a sinkhole that opened up underneath a Lawrenceville road.
When the sinkhole opened up, a parking lot on the road became flooded with mud. County officials said it all started when utility crews accidentally cut a water main.
The parking lot belongs in part to the regional headquarters for Orkin pest control. Workers said they arrived to a muddy mess, but said crews responded fairly quickly.
“Well, we had mud all over the parking lot, but a few minutes after we got into the office, there was a crew that showed up and they started working on removing all the mud and cleaning the parking lot,” Orkin Service Manager Kenneth Manigo told Elliot.
