WINNIPEG -- A missing manhole cover caused difficulty for drivers Thursday morning along Chief Peguis Trail, near the Gateway Road intersection.

A hole in the road could be seen in the westbound left curb lane, apparently causing some drivers to experience flat tires, prompting a lineup of disabled vehicles along the shoulder.

At around 8:20 a.m., crews had come and replaced the cover.

CTV News has reached out to the City of Winnipeg for details as to why the cover was missing.
