City of South Fulton officials are working to determine the cause of a sinkhole that has closed a portion of Herndon Road in the southern part of the city. The sinkhole, which affects a section of the road near Bear Creek and Bishop Road, was discovered in the early afternoon Friday.
“We closed the road immediately to ensure the safety of motorists in the area,” said Public Works Director Antonio Valenzuela. “We are meeting with contractors to assess the situation and quickly determine what repairs are needed. We appreciate everyone’s patience and cooperation as we work to reopen the road as soon as possible.”
Motorists are asked to follow detour signs to avoid the area.
