Drivers urged to avoid Webster Ave. sinkhole

A 20-foot deep sinkhole that formed yesterday on Webster Avenue caused headaches for drivers today in the Bronx.

Officials only allowed the Bx41 and Bx55 buses to pass through the road.

The sinkhole is causing a lot of traffic and businesses in the neighborhood say the road block is keeping customers away.

Police are urging commuters to avoid the area, if possible. Crews expect to finish repairing the hole by Monday morning.
