Things have returned to normal on Boulevard Maisonneuve in downtown Gatineau after a sinkhole closed a northbound stretch of the road this weekend. 

Gatineau police said the sinkhole developed Saturday afternoon. 

Boulevard Maisonneuve was closed to northbound trafffic between Rue Verdun and Boulevard Sacré-Coeur as crews worked to fix the hole, but it reopened just before 11:30 a.m. Sunday. 

Saturday's sinkhole was significantly smaller than the one that shut down Rideau Street in Ottawa last summer.
