Sinkhole Closes Campus Road, Delays Shuttle Bus Service
A sinkhole on the University of Tennessee agriculture campus has closed a road and affected the campus shuttle bus route.
The sinkhole was discovered over the weekend on Service Drive behind the Plant Biotech Building. It apparently was caused by a broken underground storm sewer. Work crews temporarily filled it in with rock. Repairs will take place on Thursday, August 30, and the road is expected to be drivable by Friday, August 31.
The T shuttle’s Neyland route (formerly the Ag route) has been affected by the sinkhole and shuttle drivers are working to get students from the agriculture campus to the Hill (Gate 21) faster. The Neyland route is traveling a detour route until Friday, August 31.
