Saskatoon, Canada. April 13th, 2011.

City crews have begun work to repairs to a section of 22nd Street in downtown Saskatoon.

The westbound lanes of 22nd Street between 3rd and 4th Avenues remain closed to traffic today because of a large sinkhole in the middle of the street.

The city says the hole is almost three metres deep and large enough to swallow a car.

Crews blame a sewer line. They say pipes broke after freezing over the winter. It’ll likely take two days to repair the roadway.
