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.
