It appeared abruptly last week, and tomorrow the evidence will disappear.

Mississippi Department of Transportation officials will be repaving the now gravel section of Highway 278/Highway 6 eastbound. Work will begin at 7 a.m. Thursday and end around 5 p.m. the same day. Traffic delays are expected during that section and alternate routes should be taken if possible.

Though the 31-foot hole that appeared in the right-hand lane of one of Oxford’s two main highways has since been repaired and filled in, it gave Oxonians a shock on the way to work April 29.

Of course, once the situation was under control and no one was hurt, we also had some fun with the rarity, too.
