Due to sewer cave-in, MSD closes East Liberty Street between East Chestnut Street and Baxter Avenue.
The MSD inspectors discovered a void that is approximately 10-feet deep, 15-feet long and 10-feet wide. Crews have closed East Liberty Street between East Chestnut and Baxter Avenue for safety of motorists.
The cave-in is the result of a break in a 30-inch brick sewer line that was installed in 1871. The area has been secured and contractors are mobilizing to make the repair.
MSD anticipates that the roadway will be closed through Friday, June 8.
Sidewalks in the area remain open.
