A sinkhole that damaged an intersection on La Crosse's north side has finally stopped growing.
The hole at the corner of Gould and Avon streets was caused by a pipe that broke underneath the road.
It was recently fixed, but the sewer department says high ground water levels have kept them from repairing the pipe for several weeks.
In the meantime, the ground has been eroding and the sink hole slowly growing. "It's just kind of a random thing. Over time, the rings, the concrete from the salt, and the winter time and that eats the rings out and all of a sudden it just collapses," said Steve Asp from the Sewer Department.
The sewer department says they fix about a dozen sink holes in La Crosse every year.
