Repairs under way at site of sinkhole in Spring Hill

SPRING HILL — Hernando County officials expect Wednesday to start repaving the roads that collapsed when a sinkhole opened over the weekend.

County spokeswoman Virginia Singer said workers were expected to finish filling the hole with sand and concrete Tuesday afternoon, then begin repairing the intersection of Eldridge Road and Van Allen Way on Wednesday.

"We're making good progress," Singer said.

She added that the county expects results from a geo-technical survey Wednesday, which will give officials more details regarding the state of the sinkhole and how it might have formed.

Linda Fisher, 64, whose house was declared unsafe by the county after the sinkhole swallowed her driveway and most of her yard, finished moving her possessions Tuesday afternoon. She said she was still in the process of learning how the damage will be covered by her homeowner's insurance.
