The eight-inch water main broke Sunday morning, creating a sinkhole in the street.

Water service for some customers was knocked out for hours, but restored by the afternoon.

Several lanes of traffic were also shut down, but have since reopened.

City engineers are trying to figure out what's causing so many water main breaks.
