ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Repairs on the sinkhole at Jefferson Street and Newton Road should be completed by late next week.
The city's engineering department said the detour around the intersection will continue through the 3rd of July at least.
Contractors doing work under the road Wednesday hit the water line. More of the existing roadway will have to be dug up before repaving can begin. Engineers hope the intersection will be reopened by the July 4th weekend.
"We talked with the contractor, and the contractor is saying the 9th of July; but we're shooting for the 3rd of July," said Craig Solomon of the Georgia DOT. "We really feel if they get in here on Monday - they're not going to work this weekend - they're going to work today; they'll get back in here on Monday, start working on building up to the asphalt and pouring the asphalt. We feel they can probably be through around the 3rd at the latest; it may take a little longer, just according to what they run into."
DOT will examine their response to Wednesday's road washout and use the results as a training tool.
But for now, Craig Solomon said both the City of Albany and DOT responded quickly to prevent injuries and further damage.
