MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A stretch of West River Parkway has been closed in downtown Minneapolis after a sinkhole opened up near it Wednesday morning.

The sinkhole happened near Mill Ruins Park, next to the bicycle path.

Authorities announced that the parkway would be closed between Portland Avenue and 4th Avenue North.

The bicycle path has also been closed, and bikes are being diverted to the nearby pedestrian path.

Detours have been posted.

The road will remain closed until further notice.

    Dear CCO Did you know that there is an earthquake fault that runs under MPLS & st Paul if you doubt this contact the MN Geo. office because they sent me some maps back in 2006 the earth is    shifting that is why sink holes are opening up all over the US like in Madrea,Ca. Oregon, Fl. but they don’t want to tell people about it because there is nothing the Geo can do about it.
