STARKVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) - Mississippi State University wants to find out how a sinkhole formed on campus.
University Architect Tim Muzzi said he spotted the sinkhole near the road last week.
The sinkhole is near President's Circle and Creelman Street.
Muzzi said they will close the road near that area so workers can evaluate the sinkhole.
Workers will do a ground-penetrating radar which can help workers determine what caused the sinkhole and how deep it is.
The roads were closed from Saturday, Feb. 8, from 7 a.m. to 12 p.m.
The university also notified drivers about a contractor surveying McCarthy Gymnasium on the east side.
