A sinkhole opened up along a Sutter County highway, revealing rushing water underneath the road.

The hole is along Highway 113, about 15 miles north of Woodland near the city of Robbins.

Wednesday night, the hole, which is about eight feet across, opened in the southbound lane. Cal Trans had traffic control operators directing drivers Thursday morning.

Water was seen gushing under the highway, and officials believe it is from a previously unknown irrigation pipe.

Repairs could take a few days. Follow updates on the work on Cal Trans’ twitter account, @D3PIO.
