The California Highway Patrol says a sinkhole opened up Monday evening near Beale Air Force Base.
The hole is between 8 and 12 feet wise and around 20 feet deep. Hammonton Smartville Road is closed between Chuck Yeager Road and Brophy Road, and is expected to be closed for at least a week.
The CHP is encouraging motorists to use State Route 20 as a detour.
