EUFAULA, Ala. (WSFA) - If you were in the right lane heading down Eufaula Avenue Tuesday and Wednesday, a merge was necessary or else you would have ended up in a big hole!

The Eufaula Police Department said the right southbound lane of the busy roadway near the Eufaula Avenue railroad tracks was closed Tuesday and much of Wednesday while the Alabama Department of Transportation worked to fix the issue.

The fix was completed Wednesday afternoon and traffic allowed to use the lane again.

It wasn’t your run-of-the-mill pothole, rather it was at least a foot deep!

The hole is more than a foot deep and has prompted the closure of the right, southbound lane of Eufaula Avenue.
