TRINITY, N.C. — Officials said pouring rain caused a sinkhole to form on Coltrane Road near Meadowbrook Drive in Trinity, closing down the roadway.
Authorities said the sinkhole started to form on Thursday and the area near the location will be closed for repairs until at least July 25.
A detour in place will send motorists around the closure by using Meadowbrook Drive, Welborn Road, Hopewell Church Road and Old Hopewell Church Road.
Motorists are urged to use caution in the area and watch for detour signs.
Lt. Grady Starnes with the Guil-Rand Fire Department told The Asheboro Courier-Tribune that the hole was caused when a stream running under the road flooded and the pavement gave way.
The paper described the hole as measuring 12 feet deep on Thursday.
