VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. - A small sinkhole caused a portion of Northampton Boulevard to be reduced to one lane most of the day Thursday.

Two of the three northbound lanes of Northampton Boulevard, just north of Diamond Springs Road, were closed Wednesday evening for emergency repairs of the sinkhole.

Thursday morning rush hour traffic was affected and motorists were advised to use an alternate route.

The repairs were completed by 5 p.m. Thursday.
