Start

The small East Promenade sinkhole evolved, this week, but we’re no closer to understanding the mystery RIOC’s creating. Here’s a quick update.

East Promenade Sinkhole

The small East Promenade sinkhole before.

Always tainted with a CYA strain, RIOC, in the last year, became more like a secret society of elites. Although there is no evidence, so far, of secret handshakes or magical rings, the internal code of silence prevails.

That is, we don’t know what they’re doing with the sinkhole and can only hope that they do.

And the super secret state agency shows no signs of recognizing any need to inform the public paying all the bills.

What the small East Promenade sinkhole looks like today…

The difference is dramatic, telling us there’s more to the story, but what?

All we have is a cryptic “alert” about the area being closed off for remediation. But even that was a little strange because it had already been closed off for weeks without explanation.

Cracks and nearby depressions fill the area, but RIOC’s treating the mess like some disgraceful family secret.

As we reported earlier, this sinkhole is concerning after, in her lawsuit against RIOC, former president/CEO Susan Rosenthal exposed the threat of a “catastrophic” collapse of the seawall.

The Delphic alert released by RIOC’s media-shy Communications Team was only a little more clear than a Zen koan.

Meanwhile, markings and trench drilling equipment from Roosevelt Landings north past the once small East Promenade sinkhole suggest more to come.
