Sink Hole on Pine Mountain

Postby GFunkMoneyDog » Thu May 12, 2016 7:54 am

I had intended to post this days ago, but neglected to. Their is a sinkhole just as you cross over the top of Pine Mountain coming from the Bledsoe side. It began a little over a week ago, and has been getting worse every day, and I had been telling people that it's going to cause an accident. Well yesterday a motorcycle hit the hole, lost control and slammed into the guardrail. This morning the state placed two cones and a yellow sign beside the sinkhole. Nothing before you get to the sinkhole.

It will be a crater before the state fixes it.

I've driven that section of the road where at one time half of the road had fallen off in places.

There won't be anything done to fix it for a long time or until someone high up or their family wrecks there. No one else matters. And the state road department sucks!!

And those warning cones and sign would not have been put up had someone not wrecked. It's not like no one knew about it.

Your right Mermaid. If the guy on the motorcycle is someone or knows someone it will get fixed faster.

The road curves to the right, and the cones and sign are on the right so you will be on top of the sinkhole around the time you see them.

What do you all mean the state fixed it yesterday by putting out cones. It took four people to fix it. Three to watch and half ass flag traffic, and one to place the cones. It took four hours of overtime work to complete the job.

The signs are positioned to where you can't see it until its already too late. It's pitiful.
