NATCHEZ -- State highway workers have blocked off a big sinkhole that developed this week on U.S. 61 near Natchez Regional Medical Center. 

 

The Natchez Democrat reports the hole is nearly 15 feet wide and 25 feet deep. 

 

The Mississippi Department of Transportation has blocked it off with orange barrels, and workers will start repairing it after engineers are confident it won't continue to grow. 

 

A department engineer, Albert White, says the spot started as a small depression and grew into a sinkhole Tuesday night.
