Repairs Continue On Hole In Freeway Near Atlanta

ATLANTA (AP) — Crews are continuing repair work on a gaping hole in some lanes of Interstate 85 near the northeast edge of Atlanta.

Workers early Tuesday morning had two southbound lanes blocked just before the start of the morning rush hour.

Officials say the southbound HOV lane and the lane next to it on the left will be closed until at least Tuesday while maintenance crews repair a broken drainage structure and repair a sinkhole beneath it.

The pavement collapsed on a stretch of the highway near Clairmont Road.

Drivers are being asked to carpool or avoid the area if possible.
