Gopher Sinkhole
Idaho Transportation Officials say road crews found a small sinkhole on Highway 78 just east of Givens Hot Springs, near Marsing Monday evening. The sinkhole was caused by gophers digging under the road, ITD says. The hole was patched up until crews can re-pave it later in the summer. Last year, local resident Sonia Lopez died when she drove her car into a large sinkhole caused by gophers. Courtesy of ITD
