Testing of sinkhole repairs on I-75 may cause delays

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (WCJB) - Your morning commute might be delayed thanks to some sinkholes that opened up on I-75 Friday.

The right lane of I-75 near Williston Road will be closed from 9:00 p.m. tonight through 5:00 a.m. on Tuesday to do further testing of the repairs, says the Florida Department of Transportation.

The sinkholes caused delays on I-75 when they opened unexpectedly on Friday. They were filled the same day.

The right lane had been closed since Sunday evening. Initial repairs are complete, but F-DOT crews said they will be drilling small boreholes to determine if there are any other possible sinkholes under the interstate.
