A sink hole was discovered at the railroad tracks on Greenwood Avenue in Bethel, CT, Wednesday night, that required the Bethel Police to close down a portion of this major thoroughfare indefinitely, as the emergency repair work is done. This includes the main road through the business district in Bethel. The sink hole location is in the eastbound lane of the grade crossing. Businesses are still open but the detours will definitely affect travel and shopping in the area.
