COLUMBIA, Mo. (KMIZ)
A lane of a state highway in the Sunrise Beach area was closed Wednesday while crews filled a sinkhole near the road.
The Missouri Department of Transportation closed a lane of Route TT in front of Doctor's Landscaping to fill the hole, which was discovered Wednesday morning, the Sunrise Beach Fire Protection District said. The hole is about 10 feet wide, the district said. MoDOT crews found its depth ranged from 18 to 24 feet.
MoDOT will use special scanners Thursday to determine whether more work is needed after filling the hole with rock, according to a fire district news release. It wasn't known how long MoDOT crews would be at the scene.
