Sinkhole in Biloxi patched and deemed drivable


The sinkhole in Biloxi on the corner of DeSoto and Forrest has been patched up and declared drivable.

The contractor Vectras headed out to the hole Wednesday where they spent the day cleaning out the sinkhole. The team then repaired the busted pipe that caused the hole.

Once the pipe was fixed, the hole was then filled with gravel and compacted.

The road has now been cleared to drive on.

Keesler is currently pursuing the final contract on the sinkhole which will cap the sinkhole with asphalt pavement.
