Many area residents have noticed that Interstate 24 traffic in westbound lanes between Manchester and Murfreesboro has been at a crawl today (Friday). This is because of a sinkhole that TDOT crews have been working to repair.

According to Schulte, crews had to dig approximately 11 feet deep, 15 feet long and 13 feet wide to excavate the sink hole. She said that crews anticipate re-opening the closed lane by approximately 5 p.m. Friday afternoon.
