A major throughway remains closed in Sierra Madre on Monday while crews repair a large sinkhole.

Sierra Madre Boulevard cracked and caved at the 400 block last Wednesday when a 10-inch water main burst underneath. A stretch of pavement about 75 feet long and 41 feet wide was severely damaged.

City staff anticipates the road to remain closed through this Saturday while they replace the damaged section of the critical water main and resurface the roadway.

Only neighborhood residents are being allowed to pass through the street.
