Streator, Illinois. May 17th, 2011.

Pictured is a sinkhole about 10 to 12 feet in diameter and 10 to 12 feet deep on West Second Street just west of Kelly Street in Streator.

Bud Barton, highway commissioner for Bruce Township, spoke with Illinois Mine Subsidence and said the sinkhole, which is outside Streator city limits, could be filled by Friday.

The road is closed until then. Just two years ago, Barton said there were 13 similar sinkholes in that area.
