Glass floor over sinkhole broached at Nation Corvette Museum

Skydome sinkhole thought to be at least 50 feet deep

While some might have joked about installing a glass floor over the sinkhole at the National Corvette Museum’s Skydome, it has at least been discussed.

Mike Murphy, chief executive officer at Bowling Green construction company Scott, Murphy & Daniel, said he doesn’t know how serious the thought is, but it did come up. The sinkhole that swallowed eight Corvettes on Feb. 12 has drawn worldwide attention and many gawkers at the museum.

“We are going to be putting up a fence around the site today,” said Murphy, whose company is the general contractor on the project. The fence will be on the perimeter of the Skydome.

Because more crews set up Tuesday evening, the fence is important for safety and crowd control.

“We know that people are curious,” said Wendell Strode, the museum’s executive director. “So Mike put up a wall (at one of the entrances) that is essentially all glass so people can watch as work is being done.”
