Over the weekend, a massive sinkhole appeared in Minneapolis at the intersection of 27th Street West and Girard Avenue S.
It happened around 3pm on Sunday and crews suspect that a collapsed sewer main is to blame. The hole is 10 feet deep and about 5 feet wide.
Curtis Stallings, the general foreman of sewer construction for the city of Minneapolis, told KARE11, "There are a lot of pipes in Minneapolis right now that are going through that freeze, thaw process. Now with the weather warming up, we got a lot of snow... so you get groundwater on top of that, as well, and that kind of tends to play an effect on our storm and sanitary system."
