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 Kathryn Schulte with TDOT, crews finished excavating the sinkhole at approximately 1 p.m. and are working to repair the closed lane of interstate now. 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.

Meanwhile, if you need to travel to Murfreesboro or anywhere else further down I-24 west, you should seek an alternate route.
