Sinkhole in downtown Birmingham

Posted: Updated:
BIRMINGHAM, AL -

A sinkhole near Region's Park on Birmingham's southside caused issues for some businesses, residences and drivers, Friday.

The sinkhole is on 3rd Ave. South between 15th and 17th Streets.

The sinkhole caused power to be turned off to the Children's of Alabama hospital until noon. A generator was used to provide power to the facility during that time.

Things are back to normal for the most part.  The sinkhole was filled with rock. However, there is still some more work to do.
