Interstate 26 sinkhole could cause traffic delays for days

Posted: Updated:

A sink hole opened up eastbound on Interstate 26, near Jedberg Road at mile marker 192.  The sink hole is causing major traffic troubles. It's located in the fast lane.  

According to SCDOT, there is equipment on the westbound side that is being used to put sheeting in between the eastbound and westbound lanes. This is to hopefully stop water from draining into the sinkhole area.

The sinkhole happened due to rain washing out concrete around and underneath a big concrete pipe. No word on size of sinkhole. There is a steel plate over the sink hole. Cars are able to drive on slow lane.

South Carolina DOT, James Law says they are hoping to have contractor to repair the road identified by Monday. No idea how long it will take to fix after that.
