By the end of the morning rush hour on June 8, a city road crew came and went, leaving three more cones around what seemed to have been a developing sinkhole on the 4900 block of Acuna Drive.

While on location, the crew broke away the depressed asphalt. Workers determined the hole was a simple pothole rather than the sinkhole Jeremy feared was growing beneath the neighborhood.

The hole had become the size of a big suitcase and a foot deep. Before filling it in, though, the crew had higher-priority work to complete elsewhere; they returned within a few hours and filled it.

Between 17 and 18 hours elapsed from when the hazard was reported to when it was repaired.
