Sinkhole snarls I-24 traffic Friday

Traffic on Interstate 24 was snarled most all day Friday, July 26, as TDOT crews worked to repair a sinkhole that opened up and closed a westbound lane near mile marker 90.

According to Kathryn Schulte with TDOT, crews finished excavating the sinkhole at about 1 p.m. Friday and crews had to do approximately 11 feet deep, 15 feet long and 13 feet wide to get the hole excavated.

Crews worked to repair the patch of Road and it reopened a little after 8 p.m. Friday night.
