PITTSBURGH — It’s been nearly seven months since a massive sinkhole in Downtown Pittsburgh partially swallowed a Port Authority bus, and now it appears the sinkhole has been filled.
On Oct. 28, 2019, the region was captivated by the sinkhole on 10th Street. It became a viral sensation and the subject of memes, ornaments, T-shirts and Halloween costumes.
Repairs were delayed multiple times due to complex underground systems and the COVID-19 pandemic, and in early May it looked like the sinkhole had actually gotten bigger since repairs halted. '
However, Channel 11 crews saw nothing but construction equipment and backfill covering what used to be a huge hole in the downtown street.
City officials have not announced yet when the road will be back open again.
