March 10th, 2014 (InsideCostaRica.com) A broken pipe may have been the cause for a large sinkhole which opened up on a heavily trafficked roadway in Barrio Cuba on Friday.
The hole is located 600 meters south of Numar in Barrio Cuba, on the roadway leading to Hatillos.
Officials said the opening of the hole may be related to unusually heavy rainfall on Thursday.
The hole is about two and a half meters deep and four meters wide and appears to be growing larger.
Motorists are advised to consider alternate routes through the area.
