Sinkhole in Corner Brook


Information from City news release:  City crews investigating a sinkhole on upper Country Road [last week] discovered that it was caused by underground erosion due to a deterioriating storm water pipe.

Crews excavated the site to expose the pipe, and planning was underway to complete the repair, however, a section of the pipe and an area adjacent to the excavation collapsed. As a result, further investigation is required to determine the extent of the damage.

Upper Country Road between the Park Drive/Boone's Road intersection and O'Connell Drive will remain closed until further notice and traffic will be rerouted along Glenhaven Boulevard.
