SURPRISE -- Road crews repaired a sinkhole that restricted traffic at a busy Surprise intersection for most of Wednesday.

The sinkhole was discovered Wednesday morning on eastbound Bell Road at Grand Avenue.

Traffic was restricted to one lane on eastbound Bell Road. Only the far right lane was open to traffic at the time.

The left and center lanes of eastbound Bell Road were reopened to traffic for the afternoon commute.

The right lane, which was reopened during the emergency sinkhole repair work, has been closed to traffic once again, however, as reconstruction work continues on eastbound Bell Road from Litchfield Road to Grand Avenue.
