ST. CLOUD, Fla. – The City of St. Cloud has commenced with repairs to the stormwater pipe that collapsed overnight Wednesday.

The collapsed pipe caused the concrete walkway above to crack, creating a 10-feet wide hole.

A man riding his bike fell into the hole around 3:40 a.m. was taken to a hospital, according to St. Cloud police. He suffered minor to moderate injuries, including lacerations, police said.

Officials had originally thought the pipe repair would take a minimum of two days, now officials are saying the repairs could take up to two months because of the size of the pipe.
