Work continues around the clock to repair a sinkhole in Fraser.

The Clinton Township supervisor says he expects three homes to go into the sinkhole. Unaffected residents may be able to return to their homes in a couple weeks. 

With each passing day, it seems the cost of repairs could balloon. There have been some rough estimates that this crisis could cost as much as $100 million. 

Crews are now working on a more permanent bypass sewer system for the area. 

In addition to all of the issues with the ongoing sinkhole drama, a car chase also disrupted the area early Wednesday morning.

A man being chased for a breaking and entering out of Sterling Heights crashed right into the barriers blocking off the road.

7 Action News has learned that both Fraser and Clinton Township police were involved in the chase. 

The good news: there was no stoppage of work due to the issue.

The man was taken into custody.
