UPDATE: 8:58 p.m.

The sinkhole that formed alongside construction on the 1100 riverbound block of Canal Street has been temporarily repaired.

The sinking portion of the street had dipped to close to a foot below the normal street level as of about 4:15 p.m. Officers on scene said the plan was to pack the ground with stabilizing materials, although there was no indication as to when the lane might be reopened.

Stay tuned for updates.
