Yonge street reopens after sink hole opened up Tuesday

A strech of Yonge street is finally completely open in Rosedale after a sinkhole had to be widen by the city to be fixed.

The hole appeared near Roxborough Street Tuesday morning and the road was closed in both the northbound and southbound directions that day.

One lane in each direction was reopen Thursday night after city crews worked on a ruptured sewer pipe that caused the sinkhole.

Toronto Mayor John Tory tweeted out Saturday afternoon that work had been completed and thanked crews for the quick job in fixing it.


The YongeSt. sinkhole has been repaired & the street has been fully re-opened. Great work by city crews to get this fixed quickly.
