A sinkhole reported in San Francisco’s Noe Valley neighborhood is causing delays for some San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency light rail lines this morning.

The J Church line is blocked in both directions at the intersection of 24th and Church streets because of the sinkhole, SFMTA officials said on Twitter at 5:45 a.m.

The SFMTA is running shuttle buses between the Balboa Park Muni station and 22nd and Church streets, to replace J-train service.

Additionally, the N Judah line may also be impacted, according to SFMTA officials.

Shuttles are being sent to provide supplemental service to passengers, according to SFMTA officials.

No other details were immediately available.
