Southwest Café in Hickory will be filled in by Christmas, the property owner
According to the Hickory Daily Record, Steve Mason plans to place the
final of five 20-foot long 8-foot wide metal pipes next week. The pipes will
connect to an existing culvert running under U.S. 70. Early next year, the
property will be paved in preparation for sale. The sinkhole first appeared in
2002 and swallowed a Chevrolet Corvette. A new sinkhole formed in 2005.
According to the Record, Mason bought the property for one dollar last year.
