Crews on Monday kicked off repair work at the site of a gaping sinkhole in Moraga roughly 16 months after the crater opened.
The process of filling the 20-foot-long, 15-foot-deep hole, which ruptured a gas line back in March 2016, has been delayed as a result of red tape and funding issues. The repair work is expected to be completed in October.
Aside from the filling the hole itself, engineers have to remove and replace a large section of culvert that was damaged. That culvert is 8 feet tall and nearly 50 yards in length.
Rheem Boulevard will be closed Tuesday and remain closed through October while the repair work is completed.
More than $3 million in federal funding is being used for the project.
