The eastbound lane of Park Avenue was closed Tuesday between Burrowes and Allen roads so that crews could repair the damage caused by a sinkhole.
State College Public Works Director Mark Whitfield said work would continue throughout the evening and that the lane was expected to reopen in time for the morning commute.
The sinkhole was discovered at about 5:30 a.m. Tuesday by a street sweeper performing regular maintenance.
Whitfield said the presumed cause of the hole is a failed rubber gasket that allowed water to leak from a pipe.
