PECOS - City roads shut down and it's all thanks to a sewer line bust in Pecos.

The mounting problems forced city officials to shut down a few streets while they made repairs.

It happened in an area between downtown and Eddy Street on west Fourth.

Officials say the leak created a sinkhole,

While city crews were fixing it, they found a gas line that's out of place.

The holes in the road are 15 by 30 feet wide.

NewsWest 9 has learned parts of Fourth and West Fifth Street will be closed until those repairs can be made.
