FORT MEADE, Md. (WJZ) — It’ll take road crews until midnight to fill a large sinkhole that opened up on Maryland Rt. 32 Thursday afternoon, according to officials.

A large sinkhole opened up on westbound side of the road before Baltimore-Washington Parkway around noon. It closed two lanes and prompting emergency road work.

The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration is performing emergency road work on a large hole that appeared on westbound MD 32 prior to MD 295 in Anne Arundel County.

The 8-by-8 foot hole has forced the closure of two left lanes and will likely last until midnight

Drivers are encouraged to plan for longer commute times and use MD 175 (Annapolis Road) or MD 198 (Laurel-Fort Meade Road) as alternative routes.
