sinkhole toronto

Stretch of major Toronto street closing for up to two months due to large sinkhole

A massive sinkhole has opened up along a stretch of College Street in downtown Toronto, putting a crimp in the plans of anyone who regularly travels along this route.

According to Transportation Services, the sinkhole is located at the Beverley Street/St. George Street intersection on College, and it was caused by the collapse of a sewer that's over 1o0 years-old.

As a result, College Street from McCaul to Huron will be fully closed for up to eight weeks as crews work on emergency repairs. 

Detour signs are in place, and anyone who typically travels along this section will have to find an alternative route — including the 506 Carlton streetcar

"Repair work is complex," wrote Transportation Services on Twitter Wednesday morning. "Crews are working round the clock to have the road reinstated as soon as possible."
