Interstate 24 reopened after sinkhole repaired

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) -- A stretch of eastbound Interstate 24 between Nashville and Chattanooga has reopened after a massive sinkhole was repaired.

The 25-foot deep sinkhole developed suddenly on Tuesday in Grundy County. Crews with the Tennessee Department of Transportation had to excavate 35 feet to reach the bottom of the sinkhole and remove unstable material.

The area was filled in with more than 5,400 tons of graded solid rock and the interstate was repaved.
