Sink hole in the middle of the North bound lane. Major Safety issue in morning commute!
Can you please provide an address, or nearest cross street near the sinkhole on McCrory Lane?
Cross roads to identify sink hole is McCory Lane and Interest 40. Sink hole can be found 50 feet from South side of the over pass. It looks like it was patched at one time but continues to sink, cars are bottoming out during morning commutes.
The sink hole continues to be a problem, on 11/29 a tractor trailor hit the sink hole which pulled him in to the other lane striking a car. People are now getting hurt.
Our paving office is having a hard time locating the problem. Will you please contact our office so we can get more details on the location?

It has been a continual problem. Over the years the spot continues to sink and they continue to patch it. It will be fixed for a couple of months and then it will sink again.
Here is an image of the Problem. This was as it appeared when fixed before. IT STILL NEEDS TO BE FIXED. The photo is just what it used to look like.
Just another reminder problem still is not fixed, looks like furniture of some kind has flew out of a vehicle due to hitting the hole. I keep getting questions from "ClickFix" if it's fixed and I have yet to see or hear of a resolution.
A Metro inspector has reviewed this location, and the old cut on McCrory Lane is stable. TDOT is investigating the sinkholes at the interchange.
Hold on, so the inspector thinks that 2 foot hole in the middle of the road is normal? My car almost comes off the ground as I go through the spot, and there is no sign indicating this dip. Plus most people swerve into oncoming traffic to avoid this spot. If it is stable then fix it once and for all! And if it was stable then why had it had to be continually patched?
I can't agree enough with Dave! Every morning vehicles are dogging this hole, please see the attached picture from last week and today is no better, even though it looks better than what it is. I don't understand how one of our Metro inspectors are saying this is stable when it is most definitely unsafe. I would love to see a metro inspector in this area around 7-8am on a weekday watching the morning commute, then they'll get a clear picture of our concern.
Much improved, however, may need future attention based on historical challenges
