City officials looking into East Austin sinkhole

Posted: Updated:

City of Austin crews covered up a sinkhole Wednesday morning that formed in an East Austin neighborhood.

At around 8:30 a.m., authorities received a phone call reporting a sinkhole at the intersection of Mildred and Canterbury streets, just off Cesar Chavez.  Work crews found the approximately 20-foot deep hole and covered it with steel covers.

The intersection is closed, as well as a block in each direction around the sinkhole.

City officials are looking into how it could have formed.
