Authorities are investigating a water main break that appears to have caused a large sinkhole to form near the Coconut Grove Metrorail Station.

The Miami-Dade Police Department is urging commuters to avoid the area of Southwest 27th Avenue between 27th Terrace near US1 as the road restoration continues.

The water and sewer leak prompted a road closure on SW 27th Avenue from US1 to SW 26th Street around 1 p.m. Thursday, according to the City of Miami. Repairs are expected to be complete Friday.

By 9 p.m. Thursday, Miami Dade Water & Sewer reported that the waterline repair had been completed. Crews are now working on final road restoration.

Chopper 6 footage shows water gushing inside the sinkhole as officials survey the area. No further information was immediately available.
