San Joaquin County, California: Sinkhole Closes All Northbound Lanes of Interstate 5

All lanes of northbound Interstate 5 in San Joaquin County are shut down Tuesday due to a sink hole in the road, according to California Highway Patrol.

The interstate is shut down at the Highway 132 offramp, and traffic is being diverted onto northbound Highway 33 and back onto northbound I-5.

The closure began about noon and is estimated to last until sometime Thursday afternoon, officials said.

Crews were making repairs to the road around 7:45 a.m. when they discovered a sink hole about 1 foot in diameter, according to Caltrans. Since then, the sinkhole has grown and stretches across one lane, half of another lane and some of the shoulder.
