CALGARY (660 NEWS) – Road crews are working to repair a hole, near a spot where a sinkhole formed less than a year ago.

The hole was found on westbound Southland Drive between Elbow Drive and 14 St. S.W. Tuesday morning.

City crews said this hole was caused by asphalt compacting and it isn’t related to the sinkhole on Aug. 5, 2020.

That hole, which trapped two vehicles, was the result of a water main break in that same area.

The westbound lanes of Southland Drive are closed as crews work to repair the hole, which they hope will be finished by Tuesday afternoon.
