EAST PEORIA, Ill (HOI) -- -

Sunday afternoon, some drivers in East Peoria may have had to change their routes after a water main burst on East Springfield Road.

The water main break happened around 5:30pm on the 700 block of East Springfield, across from the Fondulac golf course.

Police and East Peoria water crews were on-scene and quickly got the water under control, but the many gallons still caused a small flood and a sinkhole.

The water main has since been sealed. No word yet on the cause of the break or how long repairs will take.
