*Large sinkhole forces VDOT to close Oranda Road


By Preston Knight -- pknight@nvdaily.com

STRASBURG -- Excavating crews are working to repair a large sinkhole on Oranda Road.

The hole was found late Saturday night near Carmeuse Lime & Stone and crosses both lanes of travel, said Stacy Sager, the Edinburg residency maintenance project manager for the Virginia Department of Transportation.

Oranda Road has been closed in that area since, and detours on U.S. 11 and Va. 55 have been established.

The high water table this spring, in addition to flooding Saturday, appears to have led to the roadway's failure, Sager said. The depth of the hole was not immediately known, but he said it's going to be a "pretty good-sized" one.

General Excavating Inc. is performing work for VDOT.
