A hole that opened up in the 4000 block of State Road 40, just west of I-75, Thursday, might have been caused by a sewer main break.

Public Works and the Department of Transportation are currently on scene accessing the damage and the road is expected to be closed for approximately 15 hours.

Drivers are urged to use caution and use alternate routes when possible.
