WASHINGTON (AP) - District of Columbia officials are reopening two southbound lanes of 14th Street in downtown Washington while repairs continue to a sinkhole that has formed at a busy intersection. 
 
     Transportation officials say two southbound lanes will reopen in time for Thursday evening's rush hour.
 
     Officials say the northbound lanes of 14th Street will likely remain closed through Friday as repairs continue.
 
     Part of the road collapsed at the intersection a few blocks from the White House on Tuesday afternoon leaving a 15-foot hole and damaging a sewer line. Officials say the sewer line built in 1897 is below multiple utilities and old trolley tracks.
 
     Traffic has been diverted for blocks around the intersection.
