Authorities with the Sunrise Beach Fire Protection District say they have several reports of a sinkhole that developed this summer, returning to the area of Route T.T. in front of Doctor’s Lawn and Landscape. The Missouri Department of Transportation is monitoring the situation and says adding additional material may be necessary at some point to resolve the issue.
The sinkhole initially emerged in August, measuring 10 feet wide and about 25 feet deep. The bottom of the hole appeared to have a cavern running parallel with Route T.T.
MoDOT crews filled the hole with a dozen dump truckloads of rock. Geologists also installed equipment to allow them to continue to monitor the site.
