Milwaukee River Bridge Sinkhole/Pothole Makes The Point

I've been blogging lately about the condition of local streets, wiscracking that some teeth-jarring, alignment-wrecking potholes should have their own excavation permits or environmental impact statements, and stressing in all seriousness that local street repairs should be a high stimulus-spending priority, but the 20-by-30-foot sinkhole/pothole that has closed the Locust St. bridge this afternoon over the Milwaukee River drives home the point.

I'm blaming the Deep Tunnel. I have no evidence but it sounds plausible to me.

First indications are the water comes from a relatively new apartment building at the corner of Cambridge and Locust.
