Tourist Bridge Being Built Over Kentucky Sinkhole That Swallowed Corvettes

August 18, 2014

The sinkhole that swallowed up eight cars at the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green will be partially filled in with plans for a bridge built over the top of the section left open.

National Corvette Museum spokeswoman Katie Frassinelli said the facility will keep a 25-by-45-foot section that’s about 30 feet deep with a bridge over it as a tourist attraction.

Frassinelli told WDRB-TV in Louisville that officials wanted to leave the Skydome room as is, for people attending their 20th anniversary celebration at the end of the month.

The sinkhole in February did more than $1 million in damage to cars that fell on rocks. The cars were eventually pulled out of the hole.

The Skydome area will close in September so repairs can begin.

    My thoughts exactly. How can they guarantee the sinkhole won't expand and "devour" folks when they're crossing the bridge in the future?

    This should be ok. They are doing this in Kentucky and not Texico.

    Seems odd at first blush. If the sinkhole is left in a partially stabilized condition, isn't it possible that the sinkhole could expand?
