HAMBURG, N.Y. (WIVB) — Crews worked throughout Wednesday afternoon to repair a decrepit section of South Park Avenue after a sinkhole appeared.
Officials reported the sinkhole and closed the road for a half mile from Big Tree Road to Bayview Road at about 2 p.m. They estimated it could take up to eight hours for repairs to finish.
The repairs backed up traffic along surrounding routes, including Route 20 for several miles. Crews wrapped up their work just before 6 p.m., and congestion cleared soon after.
The Erie County Fair held its opening day on Wednesday.
