SAN DIEGO — A broken hydrant flooded roads in the Midway District Friday afternoon, the San Diego Fire Department said.

The flooding also caused a sinkhole, which shut down a nearby traffic light.

Police said Midway Drive between Sports Arena Boulevard and Kemper Street would be closed until the break was fixed. People driving in the area were advised to avoid the impacted streets.

The water was shut off to several nearby restaurants and businesses, frustrating owners ahead of a busy Labor Day weekend.

City crews hope to have at least one lane of Midway Drive open within the next few days, and say all lanes may not reopen until Tuesday.
