ALACHUA COUNTY, Fla. — A hole on southbound Interstate 75 caused traffic to be diverted for several hours Friday.

It opened around 4:30 p.m. in the southbound emergency lane north of Williston Road, according to the Ocala Star-Banner. It was about a foot wide but grew to 10-feet wide and at least 12-feet deep.

A second hole caved in about 60 feet away, the newspaper reported.

Traffic was able to freely flow again around 10 p.m. after crews were able to fill the hole.
