Water main Break Causes Sinkhole

Water main Break Causes Sinkhole

Posted: Updated:

Road crews worked on Thanksgiving day to repair a sinkhole.

The sinkhole affected both lanes headed westbound and closed the road to traffic in both directions.

It happened on Cottage Hill Road. MAWSS says it's the result of a water main break.

Residents were without water for most of their Thanksgiving day, but one resident says it didn't ruin her holiday.

"Kinda exciting because it's interesting to watch stuff like this happen, but it's ok. We got our cooking down so it's not too bad, and they assured us it's not going to affect out house," said Beth Lyons.

Residents say they were told water should be restored by morning.
