Crews repairing a sinkhole along New Sulphur Springs Road on the city’s East Side are expected to finish by 5 p.m. Friday, officials said.

Original Story:

Crews from Public Works have continued overnight work to cover a sinkhole caused by a collapsed storm drain in east Bexar County.

Around 9:30 p.m. on Thursday night, a sinkhole formed on a stretch of road in the 5800 block of New Sulphur Springs Road.

The sinkhole was caused by a collapsed storm pipe.

New Sulphur Springs Road is closed just east of Jasper Hollow to allow crews space to clear the roads.

No injuries or wrecks were reported.

Signage is in place to help facilitate detours for drivers.
