Sinkhole Closes Roxboro Street in Durham

Posted January 2, 2008

— A portion of the road on South Roxboro Street near Charles Street gave way Wednesday morning after a water pipe cracked, officials said.

The broken main washed out the ground underneath the roadway, creating a sinkhole that stretched nearly 30 feet across, officials said.

South Roxboro Street was shut down while crews repaired the damage.
