A sinkhole in the town of Hanover caused minor traffic delays Saturday. The sinkhole which was more than six feet deep, opened on Hanover Road south of Route 39. The Forestville Fire Chief first noticed the hole and called the county. The Forestville Fire Department fire police diverted traffic around the hole until the Chautauqua County DOT was able to respond to fix the hole.
