Pardon our Mess: Hole in the middle of Reynolds Street

WHERE: 1300 block of Reynolds Street

WHAT: A deep hole, about 18 inches in diameter, in the middle lane of Reynolds Street. The hole was marked with a single orange barricade for several weeks to alert one-way drivers of the need to change lanes. Last week, orange cones and additional barricades were placed around the hole.

WHO’S RESPONSIBLE: While Reynolds Street is a state route, Augusta Utilities Department is responsible for repairs, Utilities Director Tom Wiedmeier said.

ACTION TAKEN: Wiedmeier on Friday said now that Utilities is aware of the hole, he would have a crew repair the cause, either a sewer line break or a break in a pipe going to a nearby manhole, and patch it starting today.
