Corvette Museum Working to Oblige Sinkhole Curiosity

Construction crews at the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green are making preparations to remove the eight cars that fell into a massive sinkhole less than a week ago. 

Measures are also being taken to satisfy curious guests.

Right after the sinkhole collapse, a temporary wall was placed between the Skydome and the rest of the museum.  Now, the wall is being moved closer inside the Skydome and a window is being put in so that visitors can get a better view of the sinkhole and the work being done around it.

"We've had quite a few visitors who have been coming specifically to catch a glimpse of the sinkhole, and for safety reasons, we can't allow them to go into the Skydome to see it for themselves," says Communications Director Katie Frassinelli.

A live webcam has also been placed above the sinkhole and can be accessed here.

Anecdotally, she’s seeing more visitors than normal for this time of year and more local gawkers are showing up at the museum.
