A sinkhole opened up Thursday afternoon in Pembroke Pines, blocking an entrance and exit to a shopping plaza just south of Pines Boulevard.

It was not clear Thursday what caused the sinkhole, but police said the city’s public works department was “on scene to access the necessary repairs.”

The hole opened up on an access road to the plaza that houses the dance club Cafe Iguana Pines, 8358 Pines Blvd.

Adam Feiner, a spokesman for Pembroke Pines police, said the road was closed, but there are other entrances to the plaza.
