Collapsed drain creates massive hole in highway

All lanes could close if erosion continues

REDLANDS, Calif. (KYMA/NBC News) - A huge hole in a highway made the drive to Thanksgiving dinner a little dangerous for people in Southern California.

A mudslide caused a drain along Highway 50 in Redlands to collapse. The collapse took a huge chunk of the roadway with it.

Caltrans quickly shut down two of the four eastbound lanes, and started making repairs.

The lane closures caused a serious traffic backup.

Caltrans says if that portion of the highway keeps eroding, engineers will have to shut down all eastbound lanes.
