APSU Governors Stadium and sinkhole update

 

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – Construction crews are now remediating a large sinkhole discovered a few months ago during construction of the new Governors Stadium.

However, once work began to remediate the sinkhole, workers encountered unstable soil conditions that required an excavation more than 40 feet deep.
