Sinkhole Shuts Down Monticello Street

Posted: Updated:

Recent heavy rains are being blamed for causing a sinkhole to open up on a busy street in Southern Kentucky.

Main Street in Monticello is  currently shut down because of a large sinkhole.

State road crews say the road had been down to one lane for weeks after a partial collapse. That's when the heavy rain on Wednesday caused the entire road to collapse into a sinkhole.

The State Transportation Cabinet has brought down engineers to try and figure out how this started

No one was hurt. It's not clear how long it will take to repair the road.
