The above photo is from the March 11, 2009 flooding. I wouldn’t be surprised to learn this flooding had something to do with the current problem.
Press release from the City:
Clinton Lane Restrictions Continue Through Monday
Two lanes on the east side of Clinton Street, just north of Superior Street, will remain closed Monday.
The lanes are closed from the bridge just north of Headwaters Park and open back up just before Superior. Motorists may experience traffic delays and should plan accordingly.
City Utilities crews are making repairs in an area where a 3-1/2′ hole was discovered at the intersection of Clinton and Duck Street, Saturday evening. Crews dug through the night in efforts to find the cause of a leak. It’s believed to be a broken pipe. Early Monday morning additional equipment will be brought in to assist in the work.
At this time it is not known how long the repair will take or how long the lane restrictions will remain in effect.
