A sinkhole about 10 feet across developed in the ditch of Highway 36 near Wilton in 2011. The Public Service Commission filled the sinkhole in 2011 using funding from the Abandoned Mine Lands program. This summer, the program will fund a drilling and grouting project to stabilize underground mines along that highway. “This is what we’re trying to prevent," said Public Service Commission Chairman Randy Christmann.
