COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) – Eleventh Street in downtown Columbus is now open.

Recently, city engineers closed 11th Street between Front Avenue and Broad Street to make repairs to a sinkhole.

Recently, the storm lines failed and pieces of the road either broke off or collapsed.

Director of the city's engineering department, Donna Newman, says there have been several sinkholes on 11th Street, but in different locations along the street.
