BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) - The sinkhole that swallowed up eight cars at the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green will be partially filled in with plans for a bridge built over the top of the section left open.

National Corvette Museum spokeswoman Katie Frassinelli says the facility will keep a 25-by-45-foot section that’s about 30 feet deep with a bridge over it as a tourist attraction.

Frassinelli told WDRB-TV in Louisville (https://bit.ly/1pAiyV7 ) that officials wanted to leave the Skydome room as is, for people attending their 20th anniversary celebration at the end of the month.

The sinkhole in February did more than $1 million in damage to cars that fell on rocks. The cars were eventually pulled out of the hole.

The Skydome area will close in September, so repairs can begin.
