Previous story

A sinkhole has closed one lane of Lovell Road near Interstate 40 in West Knox County.

The sinkhole is on Lovell Road near the intersections with McBride Lane and Gilbert Drive north of I-40. The Tennessee Department of Transportation says the sinkhole developed under the asphalt and created a hole 18 inches by 31 inches wide.

Crews injected a kind of concrete called "flowable fill" into the hole. TDOT hopes to reopen the impacted lane of Lovell Road sometime Friday.
