Water Main Break Causes Large Hole to Open in Winter Park Road

A water main break caused a large hole to open in the middle of a busy Winter Park road Sunday, officials said.

The hole was reported on Fairbanks Avenue about 2:30 p.m., Winter Park police Lt. Pam Marcum said.

It was about 10 by 30 feet wide and about 10 feet deep, Marcum said.

Officials don't know why the water main burst.

No injuries were reported in the incident.

The road will be shut down from Clay Street to South Orlando Avenue for most of the night as crews work to repair the hole, but it should be up and running by the morning, Marcum said.
