ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) — Authorities in Virginia say a large sinkhole has closed the northbound lanes of the George Washington Memorial Parkway near Interstate 495, which encircles Washington, D.C.

National Park Service spokeswoman Jenny Anzelmo-Sarles says the closure is expected to last throughout Friday morning. She says experts were being called in to evaluate the extent of the damage.

The sinkhole comes after heavy rains hit the area Thursday.
