GEORGETOWN, S.C. (WCIV) --{} A critical drainage project is moving closer to completion once again in Georgetown.{} Workers were able to get back to their jobs Wednesday after sinkholes opened in the area several months ago.

Authorities spent a lot of time analyzing what caused those sinkholes to open and put warning systems in place to alert crews of any ground shifting before they went back to work.

"There's been challenges, like there are on every job," said SCDOT's Kyle Berry.{} "You just have to adjust. Every project presents their own challenges. You just have to deal with them as they present themselves."

Once the project is done, officials hope it will alleviate flooding in the area.{} The target date for everything to finish up is sometime close to the end of the year.
