Barely seen at top left is Brent Scallan who is dwarfed by the size of this crater 16 feet deep and 158 feet long on Lee Street stretching across Waddil Street near Marksville High (in background). A sinkhole developed during a street repair project. The concrete substance poured to fill the sinkhole entered the sewer line through a broken manhole cover, blocking the sewer line. The city then had to replace that section of sewer line, which was installed in the 1930s or 1940s. Scallan, a local contractor, was looking over the site last week.
