Meridian Street has reopened after being shut down in both directions between 55th and 57th Streets for about 7 hours. A car ran into a fire hydrant Thursday night at about 10:30PM. The road filled with water and created a sinkhole on the West Side of Meridian. The road remained closed until about 5:30AM Friday. One southbound lane remains closed as of 6:00AM.
