Darren Doyle, story:
What began as what appeared to be a relatively small opening from a sinkhole Friday afternoon turned out to be a big hole today on Arthur Road that will likely keep the road shut down to thru traffic for several days.
County Road Foreman Greg Carroll said road workers were notified of the hole yesterday around 6PM and the road was immediately closed at that section, near Canterberry Lane. The hole opened up to a much bigger problem today--one that about 40 feet wide, 40 feet long, and over 20 feet deep to the what appears to be the bottom
According to the Judge Executive's Office, crews began work around 6AM Saturday morning and will likely remain until dark this evening.
The road is expected to stay closed to thru-traffic for approximately a week.
Arthur Road joins HWY 259 south of the fairgrounds and HWY 70 just west of Cedar Road.
