Sinkhole repairs may be complete Thursday

POSTED: August 20, 2014 2:06 p.m.

Repairs to a sinkhole that developed earlier this month in a Gainesville shopping center should be complete Thursday, depending on weather.

The hole, which was 20 feet wide and 20 feet deep below a basketball-sized opening, appeared Aug. 4 in the parking lot of Barry’s Menswear near the Ga. 53/John Morrow Parkway intersection with Pearl Nix Parkway.

Georgia Department of Transportation crews have laid asphalt that needs to cool overnight before paving and striping can be finished, according to a news release.

Drivers have been able to access the shopping area from John Morrow Parkway, but as repairs are completed, crews plan to reopen the driveway on Pearl Nix Parkway by about noon.
