NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

Motorists won't need to detour around a massive Irish Channel sinkhole much longer.

The Sewerage & Water Board expects to fix by Thursday the sinkhole that opened on Constantinople, between Tchoupitoulas and the Mississippi River. 

The sinkhole started to appear last week as work crews arrived to make repairs. Neighbors in the area say the street was flooding because of what they believed was a broken pipe.

No one was injured.
