SCHENECTADY – On Monday afternoon at approximately 3:15 pm a sink hole developed on McClellan Street at the intersection of Eastern Avenue resulting in a passenger car having to be pulled out. The sink hole was the result of a compromise on an 80-year-old, 72-inch storm sewer line located under the area. Short term high intensity rain events in the month of July may have been a contributing factor in the failure. A private contractor has been hired and work has started on the repair. Once the initial repair is complete a condition evaluation of the pipe will be performed. The initial repair is expected to take approximately 2 days. Further evaluation will determine if additional work will be required.
