As we previously reported, the floor’s car swallowing days are over and past inside the National Corvette Museum. Our latest look at the ongoing project shows the hole entirely filled up with the mix of limestone and sand.
Sinkhole project manager Zach Massey announced the engineering team is in the process of laying out the exhibit hall with a new floor, replacing the previously carpeted area. The crew has also begun laying out the grade beams, with GPS coordinates pin-pointing where the structural elements need to be placed.
Overall, the project has really begun to come together, and the NCM Skydome has left the sunken floor in the past for good.
The NCM also announced a special contest for fans who have been following the rebuild process of the sinkhole. To commemorate the one year anniversary of the sinkhole, Massey announced on behalf of the NCM a contest to guess the total volume of stone used to fill the sinkhole. The prize is a one of a kind print by Dana Forester, which features the resurrection of the Corvette ZR1, or Blue Devil. The print is signed by the artist and all the members of the recovery team.
For those interested in participating, head to the National Corvette Museum’s website for instructions on how to submit your guess and have a chance at winning the print. In the meantime, have a look at the rebuild process in the video down below.
