JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Residents who've driven on Cooper Road lately have probably already seen a small army of orange barriers protecting cars from an apparent sinkhole in the road.

The street is also cracked in several places near Rosemary Avenue.

One sinkhole in particular is at least a few feet deep.

Many say they're concerned about it getting worse.

"Cars can just go through it. Say somebody's drunk. They can just keep on going through the thing. They're gonna go through the hole, the car's gonna fall in the hole," said Dalin Stewart, who lives nearby.

Neighbors say it appeared sometime over the last week.

It's not clear if they've reached out to the city about the issue.
