LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - Crews are working hard to repair a sinkhole in Lafayette.
The sinkhole is located at 15th and Grove Streets.
Crews believe the hole is at least 15 feet deep. So far, they have put a road plate over the top of it. They also filled it in with stone, so it doesn't continue to cave in.
Superintendent of Lafayette Renew Brad Talley said a sewer pipe may be to blame.
"Over time, it's not a quick lapse or anything of that measure. It's just over time, there's been some infiltration of the soil into the sewer pipe," said Talley.
He said the plan is to close Grove Street Thursday morning. That will allow time for a contractor to come in and make the necessary repairs.
