Sioux City sinkhole

Barricades surround a sinkhole in a park area located in the 800 block of 38th Street. Sioux City is working with an engineering company to remedy the sinkhole, which developed a few months ago but has been growing in size. 

SIOUX CITY | Sioux City is working to fix a months-old sinkhole currently cordoned off in a park area on Sioux City's north side. 

City utilities director Mark Simms said the city is working with an engineering company to remedy a several-foot-deep sinkhole in a park area in the 800 block of 38th Street, which has been developing for a few months. 

Simms said the sinkhole formed an aging storm sewer that collapsed in the area.

Simms said staff has been monitoring barricades around the sinkhole and re-secured them on Wednesday, with added signage. He said the city anticipates it will hire a contractor in the spring to fix it.
