Glendale, Arizona. March 1st, 2011.

Traffic was shutdown in the area of Camelback Road and 67th Avenue in Glendale Sunday afternoon because of a sinkhole.

Glendale fire spokesman Daniel Valenzuela said the sinkhole is right in the middle of the intersection. Valenzuela said the fire department was called to the scene for a possible gas leak after someone reported smelling natural gas.

A representative on scene with Maricopa Flood Control said a project to replace the storm sewer at the intersection was recently completed. He said excess rain along with the construction likely contributed to the trench failure.
