KISSIMMEE, Fla. - Officials in Kissimmee said they received several calls from drivers about a 5-foot-wide, 6-foot deep hole that caused their vehicles to get flat tires.
The eastbound lane of West Carroll Street between Thacker Avenue and N. John Young Parkway reopened just before 5 p.m. Friday.
Several drivers said they received flat tired after hitting the pothole.
Officials with the city of Kissimmee said recent subsurface construction associated with the installation of a pipeline by Sabal Trail Transmission created a pothole.
Crews with Sabal Trail Transmission are making temporary repairs to the pothole and it should be complete by the end of Friday for rush hour, city officials said.
The pothole on Friday is the latest issue with the construction of the pothole. A section of Dyer Boulevard by Carroll Street closed for two weeks last October after drilling work caused mud to went through the pavement.
