Sinkhole causes problems for west side intersection

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – A small sinkhole is causing problems for motorists on the city’s west side early Thursday.

Shortly after 4 a.m., police units in the area of West 14th Street and North Tibbs Avenue reported a sinkhole in the roadway.

The officers described the hole as being about two feet in diameter, but expressed concern that the entire road was about to collapse.

Department of Public Works crews arrived on the scene and placed barricades around the sinkhole.

Traffic in the southbound lanes of Tibbs Avenue was restricted.  Drivers going southbound had to get into the northbound lanes to get around the barricades.
