Thanks to SDOT for heads-up on a sinkhole – what they call a “void” – in the left southbound lane of 35th near Juneau.

As shown in our top photo, it’s blocked off while awaiting repairs.


  1. Whoa, that looks like a big sag!

  2. I swear I’m going to start forwarding my car alignment and bulging tire replacement bills to the city/county for all their holes wrecking up the undercarriage of my car. :/

  3. I’ve run over that spot so many times. I hate how the groove is right where the wheels are, pulling/shoving the car left or right when trying to navigate such a narrow lane. I’ve hit this hole a few times. Had no idea it was a sink hole though. Glad it didn’t turn out any bigger…

  4. Is this fixed for drive home tonight? Or at least any updated ETA on repairs?

  5. There are tons of those on Delridge! I’ve driven on better dirt roads! I’ve gotten to the point of avoiding Delridge as much as possible now!

  6. Doesn’t look like it’s been noted elsewhere, but this was fixed on the way home tonight.

  7. Thanks – we drove by it around noontime and it was still blocked off but it looked like it had been filled – meant to go by again while out just now, forgot.
