PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - Crews in Pierre plan to repair a sinkhole created by a corroded storm sewer pipe.

Staff members say the repair work should begin within the next four weeks, and they’re currently in the process of soliciting quotes for labor and materials.

The Pierre City Commission recently approved an emergency declaration request to expedite the repair work. Pierre Mayor Laurie Gill says the declaration allows for a quicker quote process.

Westbound traffic on Fourth Street near North Euclid Avenue will remain restricted until repairs can be completed.

Barricades have been placed around the sinkhole to prevent vehicle damage and further deterioration of the street and underground utilities.
