CUSSETA, GA (WTVM) -

A small sinkhole in Cusseta that caused a huge headache for locals has been filled. 

Officials say the sinkhole has been repaired and SR 520 has reopened as of Thursday, June 9 at 6:30 p.m. EST. 

The sinkhole was discovered last week in the median of State Route 520 near Cusseta. 

Maintenance crews for the Georgia Department of Transportation installed a lane closure for several days to repair the sinkhole.
