KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) – A massive hole that formed on campus at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville last Friday has now been filled in.
A large hole opened up in front of Perkins Hall and Ferris Hall due to a water main break washing away the ground under a stone roadway. Even though the hole looks like a sinkhole, the university says its actually what’s called a ‘drop-out’.
Water and natural gas services were temporarily shut off at the two academic buildings but has been resumed. The road was forced into a temporary closure but has since reopened.
