LA PUENTE — Hacienda Boulevard was blocked in La Puente Sunday after a broken water main opened a gaping sinkhole in the roadway, officials said.
The sinkhole was first reported just before 1 a.m. on Hacienda Boulevard at Fairgrove Avenue, Los Angeles County sheriff’s Sgt. James Beamon said.
The sinkhole measured an estimated 25-feet by 15-feet, he added.
Both directions of travel on Hacienda Boulevard were shut down between Fairgrove and Francisquito avenues as officials worked to make repairs.
“It will remain inaccessible for an unknown period of time,” Beamon said.
“Industry Sheriff’s Station personnel are advising the public to plan alternate travel routes and expect traffic delays,” he added.
