Sinkhole Causes U.S. 1 Lane Closure in Franklin County

RALEIGH -A pipe separation on U.S. 1 between N.C. 96 and U.S. 1-A in Franklin County has created a sinkhole in the highway's median. NCDOT crews have begun repairs, requiring the closure of the southbound inside lane. It is possible the same lane on the northbound side will also need to be closed to for the safety of the crews.It is hoped the repairs can be completed by late Thursday.Drivers need to use extra caution while driving in the area and to anticipate congestion during the busier traffic times of the day.For real-time travel information at any time, visit the Traveler Services section of the NCDOT website or follow NCDOT on Twitter.
