Road collapses into sinkhole in downtown Orlando

Orlando Police warn of heavy traffic delays after a busy road in downtown Orlando shuts down after collapsing into a sinkhole

Police say what appears to be a sinkhole opened up in downtown Orlando which is expected to have an impact on traffic as the weekend gets underway.

Orlando police tweeted a photo of the sinkhole located at Boone Avenue and E. Anderson Street near the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts. The hole is near many parking garages off the I-4 Anderson Street exit frequently used by visitors to downtown Orlando. 

Police say water from a hydrant caused the hole in the eastbound lane on Anderson Street. Officials have determined it will take about two days to fix.
