BALTIMORE (WJZ)– The 500 block of Mulberry Street has reopened, the Baltimore Department of Public Works said Tuesday.

A leak in an 8-inch water pipe caused a sinkhole to open up between Greene and Paca streets last July, which caused a city worker to fall into the sinkhole and being inured.

The department said it used the sinkhole as an opportunity to do more long-term improvements on more than a mile of the City’s principal sewer main.

Some paving work remains and there may be some lane shifts but the road is now open to traffic again.
