Broken water main creates sinkhole near Orcutt

ORCUTT, Calif. - A water main break has forced the indefinite closure of a residential street in the Foxenwoods area near Orcutt after it created a large sinkhole.

The CHP ordered the closure of the 900 block of Flagstone Drive at California Blvd. in the Crystal Creek Estates neighborhood after the sinkhole was discovered Wednesday night.

The portion of Flagstone Drive involved has been dug up in order to repair the underground water main pipe.

It's unknown when the street will reopen to traffic.

A detour has been set up for residents and emergency services in the area using Kennington Drive and Burlington Drive.
