They would have to buy a mountain somewhere and truck it in over a period of years to fill that thing. Maybe just put some nice velvet ropes around it and charge tourists to look down it?
I'm sure they handle it the same way MODOT fixes potholes here in St. Louis. They take a large piece of sheet metal and cover the hole then bolt down the corners. Viola, no more hole.
Keeps you awake, though.
Speaking of MODOT, my wife and I always complain about how dim the roads are in Missouri. They use the crappiest reflective paint imaginable and don't put in reflectors on the lane dividers like they do in Illinois. Except! On the new Page extension, they put in reflectors, because they didn't want to put in too many street lights; what with the bridge cutting right through scenic Creve Coeur Park and all. Anywho, the other day, the missus and I noticed that MODOT has since come back and manually removed each of the reflectors from the extension.
WTF kind of reasoning could they have to just
remove reflectors from a new road???
