Beckley sinkhole

Local - 6/20/2013 10:18 PM
BECKLEY - Traffic in one area of Beckley is now altered due to problems caused by Mother Nature.  A sinkhole has opened up near the intersection of Piney Avenue and Robert C. Byrd Drive in downtown Beckley.  Emergency Services Director Kevin Taylor tells Newswatch a section of the street has washed away.  The cause has yet to be determined.  The area will remain open, but some local traffic will be detoured for an undetermined amount of time.  Taylor says repairs will get underway on Monday.
