10-foot sinkhole: Drivers should expect ‘extensive’ closure of northbound George Washington Parkway

The northbound lanes of a large stretch of the George Washington Parkway remain closed Friday after a large sinkhole opened up underneath the road — and National Park Service officials say drivers should brace for an “extensive” closure. Drivers should expect significant impacts during the afternoon rush hour and it’s possible the parkway remains closed well into the weekend.
