Crews started construction on a temporary bypass road around a huge sinkhole in Richmond.

At least one car fell into that hole at Via Verdi Drive when an underground storm culvert washed out in mid-April.

The bypass will be built on private land and include two traffic lanes and a pedestrian path.

The city plans to restore the culvert and re-build Via Verdi next spring.
