‘Large’ sinkhole disrupts traffic in West End Winnipeg – Winnipeg


Another sinkhole is disrupting traffic in Winnipeg.

Less than a week after a “massive” sinkhole closed a roadway in north Winnipeg, police are warning about new void that’s opened up in the West End.

In a tweet Tuesday morning police said barricades were up on the inside lanes of St. Matthews Avenue at Spruce Street due to a “large” sinkhole.

There’s no word on what caused the sinkhole or when it might be fixed.

Last Wednesday night the intersection at Salter Street and Inkster Boulevard had to be closed when a sinkhole — described as “massive” in a police tweet — was discovered.
