SAVANNAH, Ga (WSAV) — The Savannah Police Department will be closing Staley Avenue Thursday for a sinkhole repair.

On Wednesday, the Savannah Police Department closed Staley Avenue between Temple and Glatiny streets for the sinkhole. Motorists were asked to seek an alternate route as the road was being assessed.

Authorities have since reopened the roadway but will close traffic again starting at 9 a.m. Thursday for paving.
