Kentucky Transportation Cabinet officials say a contractor has started work to repair a sinkhole along US 60 in Livingston County. Work reportedly started Monday near the 19 mile marker and the Dyer Hill Mines Road intersection, just west of the Dyer Hill Curve and Three Rivers Rock Road area.
Officials say the sinkhole will be lined with a special material that allows water to drain through, but holds soil in place. The hole with then be back-filled with rock and capped with soil to help prevent the sinkhole from reforming. Work at the site is expected to have minimal impact on US 60 traffic flow. However, motorists should be alert for trucks hauling material into the work site. Harold Coffey Construction Co, Inc, is the prime contractor on the $99,978 project. Work at the site is expected to take about 2 weeks to complete, weather permitting.
