Sinkhole cuts off access to Knox County community

A large sinkhole is cutting off access to the Happy Hollow Lake Association in rural Knox County.

The Knox County Highway Department said their engineers, along with the Persifer Township Highway Commissioner and Illinois Department of Transportation, are responding to the large hole which developed overnight.

The highway department said there may be a spring under the roadway.

Engineers are working to find a way to make the road passable again.
