CLAYTON (CBS SF) — A portion of Marsh Creek Road in Clayton was closed because a sinkhole was starting to form there, according to Contra Costa County’s Public Works Department.

Public works maintenance crews have discovered that a section of Marsh Creek Road between Deer Valley Road and Pine Lane has been compromised, city officials said.

Due to recent rains, a culvert under Marsh Creek Road in the vicinity of Morgan Territory Road has failed, according to the city.

Public works employees are at the scene Tuesday morning working to determine the extent of the damage.

Residents who live between Pine Lane and Deer Valley Road will still be able to access their homes, city officials said.
