Road Shutdown for sinkhole repair

Mariposa Street between Mt. View Lane and Magnolia St (southeast of Austin Bluffs Parkway and Nevada Avenue) is closed to thru-traffic while crews work to repair a large sinkhole. They have secured the area and will evaluate the best course of action to repair the sinkhole. There is no estimated time for repair.

At this time, the cause is undetermined, but as a precaution we are contacting a the U.S. Bureau of Mines to evaluate the situation as there are old coal mines in the area.
