Sinkhole sectioned off downtown

Posted: Updated:

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - The City of Wilmington will work with Cape Fear Public Utility crews to make any needed repairs to a sinkhole at the intersection of Jasmine and Orange Streets, according to a city spokesperson.

Officials say they are normally the result of failing water or sewer pipes. The pipes rust through, and then the pavement above the pipes caves in.
