Edmonton, Canada. April 19th, 2011.

A sinkhole swallowed up a portion of a downtown road near 96th Street and Jasper Avenue, after a watermain break Monday afternoon.

Two nearby apartment complexes were without water as Epcor crews worked to repair the broken main Monday evening, spokesman Scott Lundy said.

Portions of Jasper Avenue and Grierson Hill Road were closed as crews worked, Lundy said. Traffic was rerouted along 95th Street or 100th Avenue.

The water main was expected to be repaired by late Monday night. Traffic delays will continue until after the hole is filled on Tuesday and is repaved by city workers this week.
