A sinkhole on Evansville's north side caused traffic problems for some commuters.

The entire intersection of First Avenue and Columbia was closed for about 12 hours because of the hole.

Traffic was detoured onto side streets.

It is being reported that a void was discovered under the road, which lead to the collapse.

The street was repaired and reopened Friday morning.
