MSD was also called to the scene due to a possible water main break.  Traffic has been redirected in the area.

    When you go to the web and put in Thomas Kempland Glass Plate Photographs of St Louis 1914-1917, you will see good photo’s of the Brewery and many more St Louis landmarks under construction. When you see all the construction and digging that was going on 100 years ago, you will understand why the streets are caving. There is no preventive measures that can be taken unless the entire area is dug up “and that won’t happen, so in the meantime they will have to fix the holes as they appear.

    Yet, let’s build a new baseball stadium, football stadium, give tax breaks to business and ignore the infrastructure until many die from sinkholes caused by too old infrastructure decay.
    How safe are we?
