A small sinkhole appeared, and was quickly repaired, in Franklin Street late Wednesday near the Mirro building demolition site.
Community Development Director Nic Sparacio said they can’t be sure if the sinkhole was caused by the generous amounts of rain the area received recently, or if it was caused by the nearby demolition activitie.
The sinkhole was less than 12 inches across, and crews were able to close the street right away.

The building’s demolition will clear the 5-acre site for future development, according to a press release from the City of Manitowoc. The total cost for the demolition and materials disposal is expected to be $3.3 million. The Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation recently awarded $500,000 to Manitowoc under their Idle Sites Redevelopment Program.

According to a fact sheet distributed by the city, heavy machinery will be used to deconstruct the building and water will be used to control dust and debris. A debris shield will also be put in place as an extra precaution. The debris will be moved to the Waste Management solid waste landfill and steel will be recycled.
