Wesley Rd. Reopened After Sinkhole Repair

Posted: 02/01/2017
City crews reopened Wesley Road on Wednesday afternoon after repairs were completed on a sinkhole that opened up on Dec. 19. 

The sinkhole, originally estimated 20 feet in diameter, grew to 60 feet when it fully collapsed, thus extending the closure of Wesley Road between Kingston Pike and Dorchester Drive. 

The City contracted Foundations Systems Inc. to execute the repair work.
