Intersection of Sixth and Reynolds streets closed because of sink hole

Traffic is being detoured after a water main broke at 6th and Reynolds streets.

A leaking water main has caused a section of pavement at Sixth and Reynolds streets to sink, forcing authorities to divert traffic to Broad Street.

A sink hole is next to a spot that had been worked on before, said Tom Wiedmeier, the director of Augusta-Richmond County Utilities.

He said there are two other deep pot holes that will also be examined.

“We will close the intersection until we get the water shut off and can examine the problem,” Wiedmeier said.
