TOLEDO, Ohio - Some traffic lanes on a Toledo road have been reopened after a sinkhole caused the pavement to collapse and swallowed a moving car earlier this week.
Toledo's WTOL-TV ( http://bit.ly/12LddKM ) reports the northbound lanes on Detroit Avenue reopened Friday after repair crews worked through the Fourth of July holiday.
A city spokeswoman says the collapse of brick sewers beneath the road caused the approximately 10-foot-deep sinkhole Wednesday. The driver was briefly trapped but climbed out using a ladder with help from a firefighter.
The station reports crews continue to work on repairs to the combined sewer and water line. Crews are expected to finish these repairs early next week. The pavement restoration is scheduled to be completed next week.
