Caltrans' Jeanne Bonfilio called to give the latest update on the all-day closure of the Northbound 110 Freeway at Fair Oaks Blvd. She says the 15 foot (both in width and depth) sinkhole caused by the original and now broken drainage pipe from the 1940s is being replaced by a new 20 foot piece. "We're trying to get the freeway open early this evening. It's really hard to say an exact time."
