Massive sinkhole opens under Cobb Co. road

COBB COUNTY, Ga. — Drivers in Cobb County are being warned to take caution while driving on East Piedmont Road after a large sinkhole opened up underneath.

County officials say a failed joint in a drainage pipe led to the sinkhole opening near Sandy Plains.

Cobb DOT crews have closed down the sidewalk and shoulder near the parking lot for a nearby shopping center.

Crews say the sinkhole has not impacted travel lanes yet, but it could as rain continues in the area.

The sinkhole can’t be repaired until the rain ends and the ground around the sinkhole dries up.
