FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A large sinkhole has opened at a busy Fargo intersection.

KFGO-AM reports (https://bit.ly/29ldQb1 ) that a driver called 911 about 2:30 a.m. Tuesday to report the sinkhole in the road at the intersection of 42nd Street and 9th Avenue South.?

Police used their squad cars to barricade the street and re-direct traffic around the sinkhole until street barriers could be put up.

The hole is about 8 feet wide by 10 feet long and varies in depth.

Public Works Supervisor Lee Anderson says it appears the street collapse was the result of a problem with a large sewer pipe.
