Crews Quickly Repair Highway 192 Sinkhole


A small section of Highway 192 east of Highway 154 was closed on 12/28 because of a sinkhole. Traffic was rerouted as construction was done on the sinking roadway to make it stable for driving. While early estimates suggested the road might not open for a week, construction took just over a day, and Foothill Road was reopened the evening of 12/29.
