HUGE SINKHOLE on Victory Drive Columbus, Georgia

A sanitary sewer main collapsed causing a major sinkhole to form on Victory Drive.  Columbus Waterworks said the pipe collapse happened Saturday afternoon across from the National Guard Armory.
The Eastbound lane of Victory Drive nearby is temporarily closed.  Waterworks is coordinating repair efforts with Gordy Construction.
“Everything is roped off and barricaded off for safety so we’re being as safe as we can,” JD Haney with Gordy Construction said.
All traffic will be detoured until further notice.  Westbound traffic will be detoured to I-185 North and exit off Macon Road.  Eastbound traffic will be detoured North on Veterans Parkway eventually leading to Macon Road and I-185 South to Victory Drive. For more details on the detours, check out the document above of the Columbus Water Works explanation.
