The City of Regina says repairs are underway on a large sinkhole in north Regina.
The sinkhole opened up at the intersection of Avonhurst Drive and Elphinstone Street on Monday afternoon.
The City says it will take about three days to finish the repairs. The sinkhole is about 25 feet deep.
Pat Wilson, director of water, waste and environmental services, did add the sinkhole wasn’t caused by the new Gainer. Instead, it was a leaking sewer line and erosion.
Regina police are reminding residents to stay away from the sinkhole.
One truck did end up in the sinkhole, but no one was injured.
