SMITH COUNTY, TX (KLTV) -

Smith County has approved the repair of a culvert near County Road 381.

The collapsed culvert created a sinkhole on a private driveway near Harris Creek. County policy is that landowners are responsible for culverts. The county agreed to make the repairs in part due to a major railroad crossing located just upstream.

The $5,000 repair was approved during this morning's commissioner court meeting.
