Route 90 has been reopened Thursday following emergency repairs to a sinkhole in Ocean City, says the Maryland State Highway Administration.

Officials tell WMAR that the temporary repair was completed around 1 a.m. and that they planned to go back to do permanent repairs later on in the week, so it won't impede holiday beach traffic.

According to the Ocean City Police Department, Route 90 went through sporadic closures Wednesday as a result of a sinkhole “near the base of the bridge.”

Eastbound from Route 589 onto Route 90 and westbound from 62nd Street onto Route 90 were closed.

During repairs, delays were imminent as the flow of traffic alternated.
