(WIAT) — Major road repairs are slowing down drivers in Trussville.

Crews are hard at work fixing damage caused by a sinkhole.

The sinkhole, which is located on the corner of Chalkville Mountain Road and Service Road, started with a damaged steel pipe, according to city leaders.

Over the years, it allowed water to erode the dirt around part of a storm sewer.

Crews started fixing the road on Monday.

The construction is expected to be completed on Wednesday.
