If you travel through one part of downtown Charleston, you'll need to take a different route while crews repair the sewer main that caused a huge sink hole late last week.
Larry L. Roller with the Charleston Sanitary Board (CSB) says starting Monday, February 27 from 7:00am-5:00pm, Summers Street between Virginia Street and Quarrier Street will be closed.
Last Friday, a huge sink hole forced crews to close the 100 block of Summers Street between Virginia Street and Quarrier Street. That sink hole was covered with a heavy steel plate, and traffic resumed as normal later in the day.
Roller says when the repairs begin Monday, there will be limited access to that block of Summers Street. Only local traffic will be permitted during those hours of scheduled work. The closure will last daily until the repair is complete.
Traffic is back to normal in parts of downtown Charleston Friday afternoon after a big sinkhole caused problems earlier in the day.
Dispatchers say the 100 block of Summers Street - between Virginia Street and Quarrier Street has reopened.
The Charleston Street Department has covered the sinkhole with steel plates. You're asked to use caution when traveling through that area.
A sinkhole has shut down part of downtown Charleston Friday.

We're told Charleston Street Department has been notified of the situation. Charleston Police and firefighters are on the scene at this time. You are asked to avoid the area.
