A work crew from Lakeside Industries lays down a layer of asphalt to patch a sinkhole in the pavement at the intersection of Fifth and Lincoln streets in Port Angeles on Friday morning after the water from a broken 4-inch main collapsed the road surface on Wednesday morning. Port Angeles reopened the intersection on Friday afternoon. Ten customers lost water briefly but were back on the system and off a boil-water advisory by late Thursday.

The paving work planned for Thursday at the intersection of Fifth and Lincoln streets has been delayed until today, Port Angeles Public Works Director Mike Healy said early Thursday afternoon. “The stabilizing material didn’t stabilize as well as it should, probably because of the rain and temperatures. About 20 percent isn’t as firm as we would like,” he said. “If you pave that, there will be a soft spot and we don’t want that. We have a lot of confidence that it will be ready Friday sometime around evening rush hour. Who knows? We hope Mother Nature cooperates,” he said. (Keith Thorpe/Peninsula Daily News)
