“In addition to being deep, the hole is long — slightly longer than my size 13 shoes, in fact. Although it has been over a month since the incident I checked the other day and the hole is still there. There are no pylons placed at it or boards over it.”
We went there and searched high and low before we finally spotted a long, narrow crevice next to the sidewalk, mostly covered by grass, which leads to a much larger hollow area.
For children or particularly pets, the hole has the potential to swallow a small leg and the foot attached to it, while the rough edge of the concrete sidewalk would certainly cause some nasty scrapes.
While we were there, we talked to a woman who lives nearby and was walking two small dogs on leashes. She said one of her dogs also stepped in the hole while sniffing around and limped away on a sore leg.
STATUS: We’ve asked transportation services if it can mark the hole and cover it right away, until it can be properly filled.
