Sampson County Sinkhole Fixed; Road Reopens

Posted August 8, 2003

— The road woes are over for some Sampson County drivers.

A six-foot sinkhole has been repaired and road reopened.

The sinkhole temporarily shut down a section of N.C. 24 Thursday near Autryville. Water filled a drainage box and caused a 10-inch pipe to burst. The pavement then collapsed.

The Department of Transportation has fixed the pipe and filled the hole. The road was open again Friday.
