VIRGINIA BEACH--It was called a sink hole Thursday night. Friday morning, Va. Beach Public Utilities say the hole in part of Market Street at Town Center is a caved in sanitary sewer manhole.

It opened up around 7:00 p.m., forcing the city to close Market Street between Va. Beach Blvd. and Bank Sreet.

Crews were working to determine the extent of the cave-in and how repairs can be made. But for now, the area is closed to traffic.

They're also trying to figure out how it happened.

Weather permitting, repairs are expected to be completed by July 6, 2013
