Skydome at Corvette Museum reopens after sinkhole swallowed cars

Posted: Updated:
BOWLING GREEN, KY (WSMV) -

It's been two months since a massive sinkhole swallowed eight classic cars at the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green. Now, that area of the museum has reopened to the public.

The sinkhole measured 40 feet across and 25 to 30 feet deep, and crews have been working to stabilize that section of the museum - called the skydome - before letting anyone near it.

On Thursday, the public was first allowed to view the sinkhole up close.

All of the cars have since been recovered from the sinkhole, and Chevrolet plans to complete repair work on some of them.

And the rest of the museum remains open as normal.
