    A water main break in the College area caused the street above it buckle Monday causing thousands of gallons of water to flood Montezuma Rd.

    The break happened just after 11 a.m. near the corner of Yerba Santa Dr. and Montezuma Rd.

    The break is near the entrance of Alvarado estates, less than a half-mile from San Diego State University.

    Traffic is being diverted from the area.

    Sinkhole Caused By Old, Rusty Pipe

    [DGO] Sinkhole Caused By Old, Rusty Pipe
    A large sinkhole opened up suddenly in the middle of a street in La Jolla Thursday.

    This is the second water main break in just a week. Right now, a large hole sits at the intersections of Campus Point Dr. and Campus Point Ct., just north of Scripps Memorial Hospital. A water main break caused a sinkhole after a break in a rusty 30-inch storm drain pipe under the street.

    The main break caused employees at a nearby business park to be sent home Thursday afternoon, since water in the building was shut down.

    Construction to repair the hole was slated to start on Monday.
