A 15-foot sink hole caused a road closure Saturday in Columbus, Minn. The 15-foot deep hole developed in the middle of the 16000 block of Kettle River Boulevard Howard Lake Drive and Notre Dame Street Northeast. No injuries have been reported due to the sink hole.
Anoka County officials permanently closed the road. Repair crews are expected to begin working on repairs Tuesday, following Memorial Day to repair it on Tuesday. The cause of the opening is not yet known.
To repair the Boulevard, crews will need to need excavate the road, put in a culvert, then fill in and resurface it with new asphalt.
The dispatcher did not think we had enough rain for that to be the cause.
