      Both Lanes of I-81 Back Open After Rockbridge Co. Sinkhole

      ROCKBRIDGE CO., VA - Both lanes of I-81 northbound in Rockbridge County are now back open.

      One lane was closed for two miles due to a sinkhole that had appeared on the side of the road on Monday.

      VDOT officials say construction workers noticed a hole on the right shoulder of the highway early yesterday morning in Fairfield. Workers paved the part closest to the road, and re-opened the right lane to traffic.

      It will be at least another day before the sinkhole is entirely filled.
