Crews filling in sinkhole that opened up in Rapid City
RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) — Crews have started filling in a sinkhole that opened in a Rapid City neighborhood.
City crews on Friday began backfilling the sinkhole, which was discovered Thursday in front of a home in the northwestern part of the city.
Public Works Director Dale Tech says a “void deep underground” gave way, causing the sinkhole.
The Rapid City Journal reports the pit grew to a depth of 31 feet (9 meters) and measured 29 feet (8.8 meters) from north to south.
Work on filling the sinkhole will continue into the coming week.
