ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Repairs are finished and South Jefferson Street re-opened Wednesday.

An enormous sinkhole opened on Jefferson near Newton Road last week after a construction crew hit a water main.

The sinkhole was at least ten feet deep and up to 40 feet wide. The road was closed while crews worked to repair it.

They finished ahead of schedule and today that stretch of road re-opened.

Water, Gas & Light will pay for the repair work, but they don't yet know how much that will be.
