Franklin County Public Works called for an emergency road closure Tuesday morning to fix a sinkhole on Klamath Road, between Elmar and Greenar roads.
Traffic was detoured around the closed road, which is the detour route for construction work on Road 170.
Tim Fife, county public works director, said the sinkhole occurred when an aging 50-year-old concrete pipe failed.
He expected the irrigation pipe would be fixed by today.
"Only here," Warden said.
