The drain collapsed in the area where drivers merge off the 14th Street Bridge and onto the Southwest/Southeast Freeway.

DDOT crews are temporarily fixed the problem by covering the hole with a large steel plate and asphalt ramps leading to and away from it.

A DDOT spokesman says that crews will make permanent repairs in the coming days.
