Newsclip®: [Business] Contractor addressing sunken area along I-69 extension - Houston Chronicle

"Rainfall and drainage from geological features in the rugged area of Greene and Monroe counties that's filled with caves, springs and sinkholes have created a large depression on a grassy slope within the 27-mile section of I-69.
