Sinkhole Solution

Its been just over three months since the discovery of the sinkhole in Smith County. And today the state began filling in the hole. 

It was back in June when this hole was spotted on fm 724 in western Smith County. Right now it's about 100 feet wide. 

On Monday, TXDOT began filling the hole with concrete. They'll use about 250 cubic yards, then they'll finish with a combination of rocks and sand. TXDOT hopes the road is open again by the end of the year.
