Dec. 16, 2018 – West Bend, WI – There’s a pretty large sinkhole in front of the old Ziegler building, 215 N. Main Street.
While the east side of the road is cordoned off there is a mucky mess of mud leading to a large hole on the sidewalk.
The hole is about 5 to 6-feet deep and measures about 8-feet wide.
The sidewalk has fallen in from the curb line to the edge of the red brick building.
We are awaiting a call back from police for more details.
Early word is this was caused by a water main break.
According to Friday’s note from City Administrator Jay Shambeau this winter season the city is averaging one water main break per week. Last week there was a break with a large hole in the road on S. 15th Avenue.
