Another shovel ready project.
Residents of the 2700 block of Croydon Street in Bridesburg have been suffering with a sinkhole for the last 12 hours. Resident Tiffany Dever said home foundations are cracking, and a water department truck fell in at one point. A spokeswoman for the Philadelphia Water Department said crews were on the scene. Repairs to a 6-inch water main are nearly complete, and then crews will start fixing a larger brick sewer line, Lauren Copeland, public relations manager for the department, said this afternoon.
