A sinkhole was discovered at a busy intersection in Tel Aviv, leading to road closures and expected traffic.

Police were alerted to the sinkhole on the corner of Ibn Gabirol and Zeitlin streets in the city, right next to Rabin Square. Police say that engineers are at the site and that two lanes have been closed off. They call on drivers to seek out alternate routes.

Several sinkholes have been discovered in Israel in recent months, including one that shut a major highway exit ramp for two weeks.
