MIAMI (AP) — A sinkhole two lanes wide has opened up on the southbound side of Florida's Turnpike near Hard Rock Stadium in Miami-Dade.

According to the Miami Herald (http://hrld.us/2bIR6lh) the sinkhole has brought traffic to a standstill on the Turnpike, closing lanes and two exits.

The Florida Highway Patrol says it is assessing the sinkhole and that traffic is being diverted.
