The road reopened early after local officials said the road was safe.
An intersection got swallowed by the sinkhole around 5 a.m. local time on Nov. 8, causing power outages and disrupting gas and water lines. No injuries were reported.

The mayor of Fukuoka, Soichiro Takashima, declared the area 30 times stronger than before. He also told local media a panel of experts would discuss what caused the damage.
Reports put the final sinkhole size at 30 m by 27 m at 15 m deep. Construction work from an extended underground line caused the damage, according to reports.
