The sinkhole near SunTrust Park has been fixed after weekend closures

A sinkhole that disrupted traffic near SunTrust Park this weekend reopened early Monday, according to officials.

There was a sinkhole on the off-ramp from I-285 eastbound to southbound Cobb Parkway, Cobb County police said Friday. That's right near SunTrust Park, where the Braves played all weekend.

Two right turn lanes were closed Friday over the weekend as crews repaired the issue, and then all three were shut down Saturday.


The road fully reopened at 4:30 a.m. on Monday, said Natalie Dale, spokeswoman for the Georgia Department of Transportation.

At the time of the closure Friday, she said it would take between three days and a week to fix the hold depending on what they found underneath.

Separate from the sinkhole, an Atlanta Braves spokeswoman sent an alert out Friday to media outlets saying that parking would be limited due to “strong sales.”

She had suggested fans either get prepaid parking or Uber.
