Nothing chirps “top o’ the morning to you” like a giant sinkhole on a major North Side street.

Workers today will finish pouring the concrete to fill the giant crater left by the water main break on Montrose and Honore on January 22nd. The sidewalk is expected to open tomorrow and the street on Thursday, according to Chicago Water Department spokesman Tom LaPorte.

He added that businesses affected by the water main break will undergo inspections by The Chicago Department of Public Health before they reopen.
