Sinkhole on Orchard Street causing problems

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – It doesn’t matter where you live; road conditions are only getting worse in western Massachusetts.

A sinkhole is giving drivers something to gripe about on Orchard Street. 22News was there as some cars slowed down or swerved and others took their chances. Neighbors say they want the city to fix it.

Heriberto Rodriguez told 22News, “It’s extremely frustrating. We have to curb away from it. Sometimes cars are parking out in the street, so we have to go through the sinkhole. Makes it deeper and deeper every time. It’s very, very frustrating.”

Residents say they’ve called the city for help, but nobody has come by. Potholes and sinkholes like this are popping up in communities everywhere.
