Sinkhole opens up in Gaithersburg


Drivers should expect delays this week as another sinkhole opened up in Montgomery County.

The sinkhole is in Gaithersburg on Game Preserve Road just west of 355.

Montgomery County Fire and Rescue officials say the hole is on an overpass near I-270. The road is shut down as crews continue to work to close the hole.

“It will have an impact  for at least a couple days but it is a pretty good size enough where it will shut down the whole road” said Pete Piringer, Montgomery County Fire & Rescue chief spokesperson.

It’s unclear how long Game Preserve Road will be closed.
