Recovery Work Continues At Corvette Museum

Abbey Oldham, WKYU

Engineers expect to start pulling Corvettes out from a Bowling Green sinkhole next week.

Eight vintage versions of the car fell into the sinkhole that opened up two weeks ago beneath the National Corvette Museum.

The construction company Scott, Murphy, and Daniel says the removal of the first three cars could begin as soon as Monday March 3, with the hopes of having those vehicles out by the middle of the week.

The construction team has been told it can bring excavation equipment into the Skydome area of the museum where the sinkhole opened up.

Workers will be allowed to set up cranes that will suspend engineers and contractors into the hole so that they can better examine the condition of the sinkhole and create a recovery plan.
