Sinkhole In North Park Closes Major Roadway

Posted: Updated:
A sinkhole that formed in North Park today forced the closure of a major thoroughfare for several hours, a San Diego police detective said.

Northbound lanes of Texas Street, north of Madison Avenue, were shut down around 1:15 p.m., Detective Gary Hassen said.

The lanes were expected to open by 7 p.m., according to Arian Collins of the city's water department, who said a leak in the service line started the problem.

Water service was also shut down to three apartment complexes and at least two businesses in the area until about 5:30 p.m., he said.

Texas Street is the only surface street that carries traffic out of North Park, University Heights and Normal Heights down the hill into Mission Valley and Interstate 8.
