Sinkhole in the Square

Update 4 June via Albemarle’s A-Mail email.

On Sunday, June 3, 2018, a sink hole appeared in Crozet, in the parking area at The Square. In response to this dangerous situation, Albemarle County has hired a contractor to permanently fill the cavity. Work to fill the hole will begin tomorrow, Tuesday, June 5, at 7:00 a.m.

While this work is underway, there many be some minor disruption to traffic in and out of The Square. The contractor will have traffic flaggers on site to assist with the direction of traffic.

The cause of the sinkhole is unknown. The County is not aware of any sizable utilities (water, sanitary, storm) in the vicinity of the hole. It is possible that there might be some old structures associated with the railroad in the vicinity, but that is speculation at this time.

If you have any questions about this work, please contact the Public Works Division at 434-296-5816.

We’ve had a lot of rain.

There’s a sinkhole in the Square, near the pine tree.

Trevor Henry with County of Albemarle emails, “The area is currently taped off and the county will be evaluating further for a repair plan. I expect the parking in the adjacent area to be impacted until a full repair can be made. ”
