• Sinkhole causes delays in Midtown

    By: Kimberly Richardson


    ATLANTA - A sinkhole has prompted officials to close 5th Street between West Peachtree and Cypress streets in Midtown, according to Georgia Tech police.

    Georgia Tech police tweeted at 4:10 p.m. that they were not sure when the streets would be back open. 

    Delays are expected, and drivers should seek alternate routes.

    This sinkhole is one of many traffic issues in the metro Atlanta area. 


    Metro Atlanta drivers are also faced with detours from the I-85 bridge collapse. Earlier this week they dealt with major morning rush hour headaches that resulted from a chemical spill that shut down the Downtown Connector just hours before the sudden buckling of I-20 westbound in DeKalb County Monday.

    All lanes of I-20 westbound were closed for several hours after the highway buckled just before noon on Monday. Around 4:30 p.m., crews reopened two lanes. They reopened a third lane just after 5:30 a.m. Tuesday. 

    All lanes were open by 6 a.m.
