Sinkhole causes Posey Tube delays this week
A sinkhole that opened up near the Posey Tube between Oakland and Alameda will cause significant delays this week, Alameda Public Works announced Saturday afternoon.
The failure of an underground storm drain caused the sinkhole, according to the agency. Oakland Public Works is repairing the roadway.
One full lane will be closed to drivers leaving Alameda this week, the agency said.
The repair is “fast tracked” but the agency will update drivers on the status of the sinkhole on Monday, Alameda Public Works said in a news release.
Posey Tube begins on Webster Street in Alameda and goes underwater to connect with Harrison Street in Oakland.
