Repair work to a big sinkhole near 14th and F streets will cost the city $2 million. News 4's Tom Sherwood found out why.
The northbound lanes of 14th Street at F Street in downtown D.C. should reopen in a couple of days.
Northbound 14th Street NW is closed between Pennsylvania Avenue NW and New York Avenue NW and F Street NW is closed between 13th and 15th streets due to repairs to a sink hole that developed a week ago.
Repairs are complex. About three-fourths of the intersection needed excavating so crews can fix the broken storm drain, and a second hole developed about 30 feet away.
The D.C. Department of Transportation advised morning commuters to avoid using the 14th Street Bridge to enter D.C. while repairs continue.
