Suspected sinkhole found along section of I-81

CHRISTIANSBURG, Va. (AP) -- State highway officials say crews are sizing up a possible sinkhole that has closed a lane of Interstate 81 in Christiansburg.

A contractor was called in late Thursday to repair the hazard along the right shoulder of the interstate near exit 118c in Montgomery County. The Virginia Department of Transportation said the right lane near the exit was closed for about one mile for repairs.

VDOT said in a news release the lane could be re-opened early Friday.

The department has warned drivers to expect delays.
