Update on Talmadge Rd. Sewer Cave

A sewer cave on Talmadge Road near Laskey occurred Sunday afternoon (August 23rd), prompting the closure of Talmadge Rd. from Ariel to Laskey. One northbound lane was later reopened. A City of Toledo contractor surveyed the sewer cave this morning, and determined a 2” gas line could potentially be ruptured in the process of excavation. Columbia Gas evaluated the sewer cave and has ordered no work to occur until this gas line has been removed. The removal of this gas line will occur Tuesday morning (August 25th) and will require the additional closure of the northbound lane on Talmadge Rd. The City will be notified by Columbia Gas when it is safe to excavate the site to make the needed repairs.
