Repairs continue on the 14th Street sinkhole, which is 15 feet deep.
Despite the fact that crews have been working around the clock since Tuesday night to repair a gaping sinkhole at 14th and F Streets NW, roads in the vicinity will remain closed to traffic today and could stay closed through tomorrow.
City officials say they are doing their best to repair the sinkhole quickly, but say that the project is complex, involving cutting through asphalt and old trolley tracks to fix a broken sewer line 15 feet below ground.
And though the repairs have caused traffic headaches in an already congested area, at least some people are finding humor in the sinkhole—it already has a Twitter account, a Foursquare check-in point and even a commemorative t-shirt.
Fourteenth Street between Pennsylvania and New York Avenues will remain closed until the repairs are complete, as will F Street between 13th and 15th Streets.
