NORTH ROYALTON, Ohio (WOIO) - Motorists were diverted around a broken 12″ water main and sinkhole on a busy North Royalton and Strongsville roadway Tuesday morning.

Police said the issue, which was first reported before 1:30 a.m., caused a closure on West 130th Street between Drake Road and Hunt Road.

Crews worked to pump water from a sinkhole that developed as a result of the broken main.

Bennett Road or Hunt Road could be used as an alternative around the water main break closure.

Cleveland Water Department officials said repairs should be completed and water service restored by Tuesday evening.

North Royalton and Strongsville police will decide when the road can be re-opened.
