Assurance that one section of Sinatra Drive won’t sink again
Mayor Dawn Zimmer called the recently re-opened Sinatra Drive North (an extremely low-traffic thoroughfare) a “vital artery” in Hoboken, yet endorses a bonafide major artery – Clinton Street – to be voluntarily closed when the 14th Street Viaduct is re-built.
Below is a photograph of the “area formerly known as the collapsed road at Sinatra Drive and often incorrectly called a Sinkhole” while it was under repair. Strong steel girders were pounded into the earth, welded & bolted together, ensuring that THIS section probably won’t collapse for a long, long time.
The rest of the area – well, do you like to gamble?
