TEXARKANA, Texas -- The Texas Department of Transportation and the City of Texarkana, Texas are working together to repair the sinkhole on West Seventh Street.
The sinkhole is located between Pine and Olive streets.
The cause was determined to be a cracked pipe that is no longer in use. Texarkana Water Utilities has agreed to repair and reinforce the pipe. TxDOT will fill the area around the pipe and repave the area, said Heather Deaton, spokeswoman for TxDOT.
Work is scheduled to get underway today and should take a week to complete.
Lanes were blocked off Saturday night for the safety of the traveling public. Crews with TxDOT have determined the outside, open lane is safe for travel, Deaton said.
Weather conditions could affect the work schedule, which is therefore subject to change.
