Sinkhole may cause traffic issues near Cedarcrest-Southmoor Elementary School

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - A sinkhole opened up Tuesday afternoon at the intersection of Twin Cedars Street and Seracedar Street in Baton Rouge. It formed from a busted water main running under the road.

For parents dropping students off at Cedarcrest-Southmoor Elementary School on Wednesday morning, be aware that Seracedar Street is closed at that intersection.

The sinkhole is about four or five feet wide. At last report, it appears a water line has burst and water is "gushing in the hole."

The school is located off of I-12, near Airline Hwy.

There is no word on when the sinkhole will be repaired.
