The Mobile City Council reported on Tuesday that emergency funding may be granted to hasten the repair of storm-produced sink holes on Girby Road and McGregor Avenue in west Mobile. Mayor Sandy Stimpson said during a news conference on Friday that initial estimates for the repairs come in at oer $300,000 – including fixes to Museum Drive.
The repairs on McGregor Avenue should take around three weeks to fix, while Girby Road is projected to take “several months” if closer analysis reveals significant culvert damage. The city is still in the process of evaluating the overall damage expenses from Tuesday and Wednesday’s flooding rains, which dumped 14 inches on Mobile alone during a 26-hour period.
Stimpson encourages any citizen with significant damage to their personal residence to “take a lot of before-and-after pictures” since there is no guarantee of assistance.
