HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

Take a good look at that picture. That's what one man found at the corner of Van Buren Drive and Peck Road in Huntsville. Right in front of the storm drain, there's a rather prominent hole.

The man who took the picture and posted it on See, Click, Fix said he was concerned that the street would collapse.

A Public Works team went out, cut out the throat of the inlet that busted, replaced the grater blades over the open void and then poured new concrete. We checked it out, and everything seemed back to normal.

We also visited the intersection of U.S. Highway 72 and Moontown Road in Madison County. The DOT project's added a new right turn lane on Highway 72 so you can get out of the main stream of traffic and go south on Moontown.

But the man who e-mailed us says that causes a problem. He says the the turn is not wide enough if someone is waiting at the stop sign, looking to cross or get onto Highway 72.

He also says there is a big hump on Highway 72 that needs to be leveled out with the pavement on Moontown. We checked it out Monday morning, but we did not see a problem there. 

Then again, there wasn't any traffic to compare. 

I called the Department of Transportation to check if the project's still underway and whether there might still be some changes, but I haven't heard back. I'll update you when they do.
