Depression in asphalt on Mission Road turns into 13-foot hole

UPDATED 12.17.14:

A depression in the asphalt on Mission Road and Marguerita Avenue turned Tuesday into a hole 13 feet deep, officials said. Structural issues were repaired and the roads should be open Wednesday by late afternoon, said Sgt. Jerry Johnson of the Alhambra Police Department.

The hole could have been caused by a number of things, Johnson said. The Alhambra Public Works Department found an abandoned storm drain from the 1970s, faulty cement walls, and faulty compacted ground in the area, all of which could have contributed to the sinking asphalt.

“It was not necessarily one thing but could’ve been all of them," Johnson said. "They’re all fixed now."

Traffic was impacted Monday and Tuesday on Mission Road near Marguerita Avenue as the Alhambra Public Works Department worked to repair a depression in the asphalt, according to Alhambra police. 

An eastbound lane on Mission Road between Marguerita and Electric avenues and the Marguerita bridge over the Union Pacific railroad tracks are closed as Alhambra and Los Angeles County employees identify the cause for the sinking road, the Alhambra Police Department said Monday in a press release. 

The depression was reported Monday and has not increased in size since initial reports, said Sgt. Jerry Johnson of Alhambra PD.
