Durham sinkhole causing traffic headache

DURHAM The cave-in happened Thursday on Morehead Avenue at the intersection of Shoppers Street.

According the Street Maintenance Supervisor Michael Balzarano, the cave-in appears to be caused by a failed storm water line, and may take up to two weeks to repair.

Traffic is being detoured and other water and sewer services to residents in the area have not been affected.

Street maintenance and storm water staff are assessing the damage to determine the repair.

Officials are advising drivers to avoid the area.
