CHANDLER, Ariz. - A sinkhole closed roads in south Chandler Thursday afternoon, and area is still yet to be repaired Friday.

According to Chandler police, the sink hole, which closed two lanes of eastbound Ocotillo Road from Arizona Avenue to McQueen Road, was caused by a break in a 16-inch water mainline.

The water main has been repaired but the damage to the roadway is expected to keep the road closed into the weekend.

Chandler Police Department spokesman Joe Favazzo said street crews hope to have all the repairs completed by Saturday.
