We’re getting our first look at what is going on inside the Fraser sinkhole.

County officials have posted video to YouTube from inside the 15-Mile Sewer Interceptor, just east of where the collapse happened.

It shows several cracks and fractures in the pipe -- with water trickling through them.

The video was released ahead of a meeting of the Macomb Interceptor Drainage District Board to update the public on progress at the site.

At that meeting, contractors said the damage is more extensive than they realized at first.

Officials say the project will cost several million dollars more to fix than was originally projected.
