Sink Hole Closes Springfield Street

(Springfield, MA) — Bridge Street in downtown Springfield remains closed after a water main break caused a giant sinkhole on Saturday. The 6-inch pipe feeding water to Tower Square burst around 10:30 a.m. sending a flood cascading down Main Street. The water pushed its way through a revolving door into the Tower Square building, leaving a muddy mess. Freezing temperatures and bad weather are impeding the repair effort. It’s not clear when the road will reopen.
