Relax, Winnipeg. We don’t have sinkholes.
According to the City of Winnipeg, a section of Princess Street is barricaded off because of "a void in the pavement caused by a watermain leak."
Princess between Alexander Avenue and Logan Avenue is down to two lanes because of a sinkhole, which an official city press release described as a "void in the pavement."
A previous " void" emerged on St. Mary’s Road on Wednesday. It caused traffic chaos during rush hour, spawned two parody accounts on Twitter and apparently prompted corporate communications to issue a fatwa against the word sinkhole.
