UPDATE: Crews resumed work on a more permanent fix for the sinkhole that opened up on MD-32 Thursday.

Maryland State Highway Administration officials are continuing to tackle a sinkhole the opened on MD-32 Westbound, at the MD-295 interchange in Anne Arundel County, Thursday. The location is near the National Security Administration Headquarters.

The 8 foot by 8 foot collapse shutdown the road way for much of the day Thursday, blocking the left two lanes.

The Maryland Department of Transportation, State Highway Administration initiated emergency road work to fix the hole, reopening all lanes by about 7 p.m. Thursday evening by installing a temporary patch.

 Roadwork began again Friday, starting at around 11 a.m. All lanes were closed.

Crews removed the temporary patch and began a more permanent reconstruction of the roadway. Two lanes of Route 32 were closed again during the construction. The State Highway Administration said the construction should be completed before the evening commute.
