Bowling Green, KY – Two years ago, on February 12th, 2014, many people across the globe woke up to some startling news – a sinkhole had opened up inside the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky, and eight Corvettes were laying at the bottom of it.
Fortunately, the cars and building were the only things damaged as it occurred in the early morning hours before anyone was in the Museum. The story captivated those who watched it, and while the Museum initially planned to put the past behind them, the interest in the sinkhole and damaged Corvettes was undeniable.

Ceremonial “First Rock” Tossed Into Hole
Bowling Green, KY – It’s been seven weeks since construction work on the National Corvette Museum sinkhole began, with the ‘filling of the hole’ process officially starting yesterday, December 29th.
Museum Executive Director Wendell Strode cast the first rock, inscribing ‘Awesome God, Everyone Safe’ on it. “The good Lord let it happen. It was roughly a quarter to six in the morning and we did not have anyone in the museum. No staff, no visitors, no guests. We’re so thankful for that,” Strode said before tossing the first rock into the hole.

Bowling Green, KY – The National Corvette Museum Board of Directors held their quarterly meeting and finalized plans for repair of the Museum’s Skydome building, and the eight Corvettes affected by the February 12th, 2014 sinkhole collapse.
After careful review of additional information and revised plans with price quotes from the construction company, the board voted to completely fill in the sinkhole.
Guests offered opportunity to enter Skydome for close look at sinkhole
Bowling Green, KY – On February 12th the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, KY was handed a lemon… a 40′ wide by 60′ deep lemon to be exact. What the Museum did, in turn, was even more unexpected than the sinkhole itself. The Museum turned the misfortune into a tourist attraction.
“We started with a Plexiglas viewing window so guests could see the construction going on inside the Skydome, and eventually the recovery of the Corvettes,” said Katie Frassinelli, Marketing and Communications Manager at the Museum. “We always had one web cam available inside the Skydome, and due to the growing interest and popularity we added two more so our online visitors could get additional angles to view what was going on.”
Clarksville, TN – Construction crews are now remediating a large sinkhole discovered a few months ago during construction of the new Governors Stadium. The hole, identified in March when construction crews installed underground utilities, was relatively small, measuring only a few feet across.
However, once work began to remediate the sinkhole, workers encountered unstable soil conditions that required an excavation more than 40 feet deep.
