15-foot sinkhole closes Meadowdale Boulevard overnight; road back open


A stretch of Meadowdale Boulevard is back open after a sinkhole opens up near an apartment complex Thursday night.

The area near Beulah Road was closed since 8:30 p.m. after the 15-foot hole opened up at the Crystal Lake apartment complex near Bensley Elementary School. Meadowdale was closed from the 3100 block to the 3800 block. The road reopened around 5:15 a.m. Friday.

Fire crews say water from recent rains caused the hole to open up, and it is actively flowing. However, it is stable.
