It's in the middle of the road near a manhole cover. I'd say the sink hole is maybe 18" wide . The road is roped off with tape and cones. Yes... it's a street in the village of Lake Deaton. There are homes on both sides of the road.

My first thought would be with all the recent rain, and so close to manhole cover, could this just be a underground pipe issue?

You would think, knowing that areas near The Villages are known for sinkholes, that they'd take extra precautions when running pipes underground to protect integrity of the roads and surrounding properties.

What would those 'extra precautions be? And why would they be made at what expense if not deemed in emergent need of same?
