An intersection in Carterville is closed for the time being.
For the next 24 to 48 hours the intersection between East Hall Street and North Cass Street is blocked off due to a void forming in the middle of the road. Shortly after 11 am today, city workers were filling in the 1 foot deep hole with rock.
City officials have contacted the Department of Natural Resources to receive confirmation whether it’s a sinkhole or not. There doesn’t seem to be enlarging and workers will be out tomorrow to see if the area is stable.
