KINGSTON — An abandoned sewer line collapsed causing a sink hole and traffic congestion on Wyoming Avenue on Friday.
Kingston Administrator Paul Keating said the Wyoming Valley Sanitary Authority inspected the sink hole determining it was caused by a compromised abandoned sewer lateral.
The sink hole opened in the northbound passing lane near Pierce Street.
Repairs were made Friday as motorists were prohibited from turning south on Wyoming Avenue from Pierce Street, and from Wyoming Avenue onto Pierce Street.
Keating said he was told the terracotta sewer line is about 100 years old and was abandoned sometime after the 1972 Agnes Flood.
