As if there wasn't enough road construction in Hubbard County, a section of County Road 40 now has a 30-foot-deep hole in it.

Ben Cumber of Cumber Construction explained the asphalt highway was starting to settle because of inadequate fill underneath and caused a dangerous dip for motorists. Cumber Construction began excavation Monday, shutting the road section east of County Road 7 down to one lane.
