Doraville sink hole problems expand. Street collapse.

Jesse Norman at Buford highway is collapsing as the 1500 foot metal pipe that runs in front of the Quick trip on Buford and Jesse Norman continues to cave. The pictures follow the pipe from the quick trip across the old North East bank property, across Jesse Norman, behind the Quick trip. Doravilleonlinenews has tried for the last two weeks to interview the Doraville city manager for comment. Has not responded. Update: sat down with the Doraville city manager on monday 6-16-2014. “Engineers are looking at the pipe at the waffle house”. Didn’t want to talk about the complete system of pipes rusting out, streams, collapsing roadways, or the three previous non permitted jobs on the waffle house property, staff problems. The tractor in the sink hole was one of those approved without a permit or approved site plan jobs. See: City Manager interview

The new Quick trip combines three lots with all the paving to send all the rainwater into a old collapsing system.
