MIRA MESA, Calif. (KGTV)--Residents of one San Diego neighborhood are relieved the city seems to have finally taken notice of their plight of the growing mystery mound on their street.

Road repairs began this morning on the mound on Perseus Road neighbors told 10News photojournalist Mike Gold. The workers left after working for four hours and marking the street, they said. 

The mounting problem was first reported by 10News reporter Brian Schlonsky a couple weeks ago after concerned residents said it was due for a major street repair.

Past attempts to fix the street were unsuccessful and one family that lives right next to the mound worried about attending to the needs of their son with cerebral palsy if he were to ever have an emergency. Others feared a dangerous sinkhole might form. 

Neither the city or the workers communicated with the residents. Their hope is that the entire street gets repaved to looked like all the other streets in the neighborhood, they told Gold.
