CLEVELAND — Crews are working to repair a water main after a massive sink hole opened up in the middle of West 70th Street in Cleveland.

West 70th Street remains closed Tuesday as crews work to repair the massive hole.

The sink hole is result of a broken water main coupled with a sewer collapse, believes John Goersmeyer with Cleveland Water.

Crews repaired the 12-inch main break early Tuesday.
