A sinkhole on a bridge at the Pine Haven manufactured housing community in Marietta, GA left residents who relied on the only vehicular access to the community stranded on Monday, June 17. Some residents needing to go to work relied on cabs or friends to take them; others waited for repairs to be completed. While several residents said it is not the first time the bridge has broken down, manager Randy Iaquinto stated RHP Properties acquired Pine Haven in January, and he was unaware of previous problems. Heavy storms during the night likely led to the collapse, which was discovered around 4 AM, according to what cbsatlanta tells MHProNews. Iaquinto said he expects temporary passage to be set up by Monday evening. As we reported April 16, RHP Properties acquired 71 manufactured housing communities for $865 million. It was not immediately know if that acquisition include Pine Haven.
