Sink Hole No More

  It's finally fixed! After seven long months, TXDOT has finished repairing the giant Smith County sinkhole.  It was on FM 724 between Highways 64 and 110. That's just a couple of miles north of Tyler Pounds Regional Airport.

  This morning, cars were allowed to cross this stretch of pavement for the first time since it collapsed. Repairing the hundred foot sinkhole cost the state about a million dollars. TXDOT says the project took so long to complete, because it was the first of it's kind in the Tyler area.
