The state Department of Transportation reopened an Adams County road Thursday afternoon after crews repaired damage caused by a sinkhole.

Black Lane had been closed since Sunday, with traffic prohibited between Oxford Avenue in Conewago Township and Mount Misery Road in Oxford Township.

Officials closed Black Lane and the bridge that carries it over the South Branch of the Conewago Creek because the sinkhole undermined the road and could have damaged the bridge, officials said.

Damage was repaired and the bridge was inspected, officials said.
