The fate of the sinkhole at the National Corvette Museum will be decided Aug. 30 at the museum’s board of directors meeting.

The meeting coincides with the museum’s 20th anniversary celebration, when thousands of Corvette lovers and owners will flock to town and see the sinkhole that opened Feb. 12 in the museum’s Skydome and swallowed eight cars.

“We’re getting close,” said Mike Murphy, president of Scott, Murphy & Daniel construction group, which has been in charge of the recovery, stabilization of the Skydome and the restoration of the building. “We pretty much have to know by Thursday.”

Thursday is when Murphy will meet with museum staff, according to museum Executive Director Wendell Strode.

“We won’t decide what they do. That is up to the museum and the board,” Murphy said in response to a question about his favorite option concerning the sinkhole. “I’m sure it will be based on cost. We want to keep it as open as possible as to where people can look and see in it. We have preliminary numbers about what things are looking like, and we are zeroing in on what will fit the budget.”
