Today, Tx-DOT hired a new company to pick up where its former geologist left off in the case of the giant sinkhole in Smith County. Kellogg, Brown & Root, a division of Halliburton, will study the sinkhole and recommend the best way to fix the road. Tx-DOT says it may involve building a bridge.
The sinkhole has been growing steadily since it formed 2.5 weeks ago. It's now more than 100 feet wide.
