ESCONDIDO (CNS) - A water-main break flooded an intersection near Grape Day Park Friday, creating a large sinkhole that shut down a major roadway.

The ruptured pipeline began inundating East Washington Avenue at Waverly Place in Escondido about 1 p.m., according to police.

The break and subsequent sinkhole closed East Washington from Juniper and Broadway while crews worked to repair the broken pipe and damaged roadway.
