CREATED Aug. 6, 2012

BONTIA SPRINGS, Fla. - A massive sinkhole opened up near Coconut Road and U.S. 41 in Estero over the weekend disabling the traffic signal.

A water main break caused the sinkhole.  The hole swallowed up a large traffic control box,taking out the signal system.

Crews are working to excavate the hole, patch the main and restore the traffic signals.

Traffic along portions of Coconut Road are restricted in the area.

Fortunately water service in the area was not disrupted.
