Downtown Sinkhole Has Major Traffic Impact

Downtown Ottawa is going to be a traffic mess for a while after a huge sinkhole opened up near a busy intersection not far from Parliament Hill. No injuries were reported in yesterday’s sudden road collapse on Rideau at Sussex, but a minivan fell into the gaping hole as stunned passersby watched. The sinkhole is causing headaches for bus commuters and motorists and the situation is expected to be frustrating for at least the next few days.
