Despite extra precautions following earlier sinkholes that appeared in October 2014 and January 2015 when the tunnel boring machine was undergoing maintenance, on Thursday, April 9, 2015, a third sinkhole appeared along the Evergreen Line Skytrain route under Clarke Street.  Crews are working as fast as possible to safely address the problem.
