It’s been about a month since a portion of the National Corvette Museum closed so the infamous sinkhole can be repaired. For an update, we introduce to you Project Manager Zach Massey, who gives us the skinny on what is being done this week.
Massey states that there’s been a slight change of plans on their approach, which resulted in “establishing a uniform grade at the bottom of the cone, and creating a concrete mud mat which was poured [on December 5th].” This gives the construction crew a surface from which to work. After the work surface cures, they plan to interlock three or four sheets at a time and slide them into position to close the gaps.
There’s more to this engineering feat than just what’s been described above − take a look at the below video to get the whole story on the Corvette Museum’s repair process..
