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.
A hole formed in #Calgary's SW 7 months after another one was filled super close by. Southland Dr. W/B closed between Elbow Dr. & 14th St. I'm told the hole here was caused by asphalt compacting and it isn't related to the sinkhole from Aug. Crews hope to be done by 3p today #yyc https://t.co/6xvUvHPHZN pic.twitter.com/PIQZkHtxyM

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.
