There's a 2 foot deep 30 - 40 foot long hole in the highway at the south end of Sand Lake. The entry and exit are very steep - a car travelling at any speed would bottom out.

Signs are very poor - a "bump ahead" and a "change from pavement to gravel" with a small flag.

This is a very dangerous situation. Be extremely careful.
