Eastbound State Road 528 Down To One Lane


UPDATE: According to the Florida Department of Transportation's contractor, the hole on State Road 528 is not a sinkhole.

Instead, the hole was caused by a leaking pipe underneath the Beachline Expressway.


Highway engineers are working to make the needed repairs.  However, the roadway will be down to one lane for much of the day.
