Fire truck finds weak spot in Avondale parking lot

Fire truck finds weak spot in Avondale parking lot

SinkHole_01An abundance of yellow and red caution tape surrounded a portion of an Avondale shopping center parking lot in early May. The cautionary measures, along with large plywood sections, indicated damage and raised concerns about the integrity of the parking surface.

When JFRD’s 15-ton Engine 22 made a pit stop for lunch one day recently, the firemen returned to find one end of the truck a little lower than the other. A culvert had collapsed under a wheel. According to Tom Francis, public information officer for the Jacksonville Fire & Rescue Department, the engine was not damaged although it did have to be pulled out of the culvert.
While the onsite property manager was not able to provide a statement about the hole, The Resident was referred to Brooke C. Klink, Palatine Capital Partners, and spokesperson for Chase Properties, who was asked what was being done about the damage. “We have engaged a civil engineer to review the issue and provide recommendations for stabilization and repair,” she said. “Our property management team is in constant contact with all of our residents and tenants, and, as always, will keep us abreast of any concerns that are raised due to this, or any other issue that affects the property.”
