Latest act of God, a Giant "sink hole" 10'-16' and 10' deep (not that the depth matters much at highway speeds, you are still pizza) appeared in the Baltimore-Washington Parkway yesterday, completely blocking off the Northbound lanes.

First turkish sheep offing themselves, now this!

(07.08.05- AP) — The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is working to repair a sinkhole that has shut down the northbound lanes of the Baltimore-Washington Parkway at Route 32 near Laurel.

Corps spokesman Chris Augsburger says emergency repair work is expected to be finished by around 10 p.m. Friday, but the roadway won't be open again until Saturday morning.

He says the shoulder of the northbound parkway has to be repaved in the area.

Augsburger says the sinkhole is 16 feet wide and 10 feet deep.

Northbound traffic is being diverted to Route 32, and motorists are being asked to use Interstate 95 or Route One.

The National Park Service says this morning's heavy rain caused the sinkhole to form.

Hey, that's nothing. We have sink holes all the time around here. I live near the marble quarry and they're a common occurance. Hwy 280/231 had one take out all the north bound lanes last summer. My ex husband was working on the ambulance and they hit the beginning of it around 2am. When they were on their way back to the station at 5am, the sink hole had taken out both north bound lanes and almost the entire median. And my house is about 1000 yards from a sink hole, its been there since I was a toddler.
