    Crews work to block off a six-foot hole from traffic at 45th and Cottage Grove.

    Chicago's fluctuating weekend weather did more than flood rivers and pack beaches.

    A wide, six-foot hole was discovered just before 7 a.m. Tuesday near 45th and Cottage Grove.

    Crews blocked the street around the hole to avoid accidents, and the CTA rerouted the No. 4 Cottage Grove bus. 

    Weather apparently is to blame for the gaping hole. Drivers are being reminded to stay alert.
