UNION TOWNSHIP, CLERMONT COUNTY, OH (FOX19) – -

A sinkhole has been filled on Mt. Carmel Tobasco Road across from St. Veronica Catholic Church and school, Clermont County officials said Wednesday.

Engineers and road crews worked on the sinkhole Tuesday and placed metal plate over the problem area. They briefly returned to the area Wednesday morning to finish up paving over the sinkhole, said Clermont County Highway Superintendent Woody Woodmansee.

The sinkhole wasn't large, but it poses as a very serious threat for drivers and pedestrians.

"There are several dangers," he said Tuesday. "I mean, you have the danger of the road collapsing, ultimately someone could hit that, you know, could throw someone off the road, someone could come walking up and fall into that hole. Several things, it's a dangerous situation." 

Engineers say a leaking pipe beneath the roadway caused this sinkhole. Crews worked Tuesday to fix the problem.

The concern is that the pavement could collapse.

For now, there are temporary measures in place as well as a clear indication to drivers not to pass over this part of the road.

Officials say this has been a problem for some time, but it was all underground so you couldn’t see it.
