The National Corvette Museum’s board of directors is meeting Wednesday to decide how to repair the site of a February sinkhole that swallowed eight cars.

"Initial discussion so far is mostly how many cars could be displayed in the Skydome with each option," Marketing and Communications Director Katie Frassinelli wrote in a Facebook posting.  "Since it is our largest display area we don't want to lose a lot of prime car display space."

Based on discussions so far, the Skydome floor would go from two levels to one to allow more display space.

Among the options being considered is covering a small portion of the sinkhole with plexiglass and maintaining it as a permanent part of the Skydome where the collapse occurred. 

The Skydome will be repaired following the museum’s 20th Anniversary Celebration in late August.
