ISHPEMING — Commuters in the Ishpeming area should be aware of a road closure this week.

East Division street between Jasper and Seventh Streets has been closed by the city. The Department of Public Works says a sinkhole formed over an abandoned steam tunnel, making the road unsafe to drive on.

The street will remain closed until the street can be repaired, which may take several days. There will be a detour in place on Fourth Street and local traffic will be allowed on Division between Fourth and Jasper.
