As Scottsdale Injury Lawyers, we want everyone to be aware of some traffic hold ups in the Scottsdale area. Drivers in the Scottsdale area should be aware of an unusual traffic hold-up at Pima and Pinnacle Peak Road. The traffic hold up is a sinkhole at the intersection of these two roads. The sinkhole, which was discovered Thursday, is probably the result of an abandoned water pipeline line. Officials say it is not related to the road improvement project that has been taking place in the area. As work begins this week to repair it, as many as seven lanes of traffic will be closed. Typically roads closed lead to serious accidents so we want to inform everyone to be careful in these areas.
Many times traffic results in confusion and misunderstandings and serious injuries can result in this area if people are not careful. Scottsdale is generally a safe area but with a lot of construction going on the area is not free of accidents.
The sinkhole is occurring in the wake of a road improvement project, which seeks to increase safety measures, reduce traffic flow, as well as adding bike lanes and foot paths. Scottsdale is in Maricopa County, which has the highest rate of traffic accidents in the state – well over 60,000 per year. So far, no accidents or injuries have occured as a result of the sinkhole.
