SANTA CRUZ (CBS SF) — An oceanfront intersection has partially reopened after a sinkhole shut down traffic in Santa Cruz Saturday, police said.

The intersection of West Cliff Drive and Woodrow Avenue has been partially reopened after the Public Works Department evaluated the sinkhole and determined that the area needed to have barricades diverting traffic, according to police.

All westbound traffic along West Cliff Drive is open. Eastbound traffic on West Cliff Drive remains closed to vehicles and traffic is being diverted north onto Woodrow Avenue.

The partial road closure is expected to continue throughout the weekend, police said. Santa Cruz Public Works crews were at the scene to investigate the sinkhole as of 11:30 a.m. Saturday.
