Large hole in the road forces traffic to be diverted in Hattiesburg

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - City workers are repairing the site of a collapsed sewer main on the corner of Klondyke and E. Hardy St.

The hole is approximately 15 feet across and appears similar to a sinkhole, but officials say it was caused by a broken 18 inch sewer main which eroded the dirt around it and ultimately eroded the surface.

Traffic has been diverted around the area.
