WILLIAMSTON, MARTIN COUNTY -

NC State Troopers say a sinkhole has closed a road in Martin County.

That sinkhole is on Lee Road in Williamston, near Sweet Home Road.  The sinkhole is approximately two feet in diameter and three feet deep. 

A call came in about the sinkhole around seven Thursday night.  Troopers went out and shut down the road at that time.  They expect it to remain closed until four Friday afternoon but say that depends on whether it rains.
