Part of Massachusetts Avenue in Southeast D.C. is closed Friday because of a major sinkhole.
The road is shut down between 34th Street and 34th Place SE, according to D.C. Police. It is not known how long the roadway will be closed, but officials advised riders to use alternative routes.
D.C.’s Department of Transportation tweeted a photo to give you passersby an idea of just how big the hole looks.

The latest sinkhole in D.C. opened up Thursday evening.
It isn’t the only one.
There have been a number of sinkholes at intersections, on sidewalks and parking lost in the D.C. region.
As my colleague Mark Berman pointed out Thursday. Here’s a look at some of the sinkholes in the area recently:
*One of the biggest was in downtown at 14th and F streets in Northwest that closed the intersection for days.
*There was one in a parking lot near the intersection of M Street and New York Avenue in Northwest that allegedly tried to consume a Honda.
*And there was one last March in Adams Morgan. A good view of a corgi near the hole.
