Sinkhole on I-75

Here is an article from today's Florida Today. Might want to use I-95 for the next few days if you are sailing this weekend.

Sinkhole delays traffic on I-75 in N. Florida


A sinkhole is delaying traffic today on Interstate 75 in the Gainesville area, according WKMG Local 6 in Orlando and its news partners.

Two southbound lanes on I- 75 in northern Alachua County were closed Wednesday to allow crews to fill a sinkhole under the outside travel lane, Florida Department of Transportation officials said.

About one mile of the interstate north of U.S. 441 was affected by the 12-foot wide, 12-foot long sinkhole. Officials said the sinkhole was 3 feet deep, but loose and soft soil was detected down to about 46 feet.

One lane reopened Wednesday afternoon, but road officials expect the outside lane to remain closed for 3-5 days while it hires a contractor to fill the cavity with a mixture of sand and cement.

What is going on?!?!?!? We were delayed EARLY in our trip a few weeks ago by a sinkhole in I-75 South. Nothing more frustrating than leaving KY and hitting bumper to bumper traffic less than 2 hours into a 12 hour drive. Luckily, we'd planned extra days, so we didn't come close to "missing the boat".
