Large sinkhole forces McKeesport road to close

The sinkhole opened up on Versailles Avenue.

The roadway is currently closed between Union Avenue and Coursin Street, near the McKeesport Presbyterian Church.

The city’s mayor said it’s believed that the sink hole is believed to be caused by a lateral sewage line owned by the church. Officials also believe the lines to be insured.

“We are working with the church to address the true issue at hand, which is coming from their property, in order for us to be able to fix the road permanently,” Mayor Michael Cherepko said. “We are all working to remedy this situation as quickly and safely as possible.”

There is no word on how long the section of road will be closed.

Neighbors said the hole has been an ongoing issue for at least the last several months.
