Greenville Council Sinks into Morass Of Manhole Repairs

Chicot Memorial

GREENVILLE, MS (Ben Caxton) — The Greenville City Council sank deeper into the problems associated with the disappearing downtown manhole last week. Council members voted, with one “no” vote, to approve spending $850,700 to repair the sinking manhole at Broadway and Alexander streets. But the city learned that may not be the final cost. An engineering firm overseeing the repair process says that it’s difficult to tell what other problems may be lurking under the water 20 feet below street level. Burle told the council that other systems under that intersection that may have been damaged or require repair as well. The city has issued a $9M bond to help cover the repairs and any unforeseen issues found once repairs begin.
