A sinkhole that opened up in a Lake County neighborhood early Monday morning is now filled with concrete.
The large hole opened up around 2 a.m. Monday in the Hartwood Reserve subdivision in Clermont, off of Hartwood Marsh Road, south of State Road 50.
The hole is in the middle of the road at the intersection of Peaceful Valley Drive and Powderhorn Place Drive and neighbors tell News 13 it is a school bus stop.
Since there was no school Monday due to the Presidents Day holiday, the Lake County School District's transportation department said they will be notifying parents of any changes to bus stops in this neighborhood.
The county built a makeshift road along the outside of the possible sinkhole Monday afternoon. It was filled Tuesday afternoon after it grew slightly larger.
No houses appeared to be in immediate danger, but people in 15 homes in a cul-de-sac behind the sinkhole were unable to leave their neighborhood by car Monday morning.
Clermont Public Works crews brought in ground-up asphalt to create a ramp over a curb to allow homeowners in the cul-de-sac behind the sinkhole to drive around the sinkhole through a homeowner's front yard.
This is the second hole to open in up the same neighborhood in two years. City leaders said part of the asphalt fell on a water main pipe, but doesn't appear to be causing any more issues. A smaller hole in July 2012 just down the street was caused by a leaking sprinkler system or sewage pipe.
Firefighters said they didn't observe any other hazards from Monday's sinkhole, but noted a gas line and water main were nearby. Those utilities, however, did not appear to be disturbed by the hole.
