MANISTEE — A sink hole was repaired at the corner of Washington and Quincy streets on Friday morning.

Manistee residents passing by around 8 a.m. were able to find city road construction crews working to repair the hole.

“Our crews excavated and determined that a fiber optic line had been installed and had damaged our

sanitary sewer,” said Jeff Mikula, director of the Manistee Department of Public Works. “We repaired the sewer and repaired the hole.”

The sink hole was fixed by noon. The issue is said to be fully resolved.

“It was not a huge deal,” said Mikula. “The crew started first thing Friday morning.”

Mikula also gave an update on the long awaited 12th Street construction project. He said a start date is not yet determined.

“It has not started yet. We have not heard a date about when the contractors are going to mobilize,” he said.

The city is also undergoing work on Oak Street this summer, the portion between 12th Street and Ninth Street will be reconstructed. The entire project is expected to be three to be four weeks long.
