Over a year ago, a massive sinkhole opened up, taking eight prized Corvettes of various significance with it. While the Corvettes are restored and repaired, the NCM has been busy commissioning a whole new floor, and filling in the giant hole.
“If there were ever a future collapse of any kind, the floor is not going to go anywhere, it will stay in place,” said NCM Marketing and Communications Director Katie Frassinelli.
Local WKMS reports the project is nearly finished, with crews cleaning, painting and prepping the space for the grand reopening in July. The hole was filled with crushed limestone, and new supports were added to ensure a stable and secure floor, similar to the grates used in road construction.
The project, once completed, will ring up a tab of $5 million.
