Bellevue road to be closed for weeks for sinkhole repairs

Posted: Updated:
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

A Bellevue road is expected to remain closed for at least two to three weeks as crews work to repair a major sinkhole.

The 10 to 15 feet sinkhole is located in the 400 block of Hicks Road between Highway 70 South and Sawyer Brown Road and is blocked off by caution barriers.

Officials told News 2 a drain pipe under the road collapsed, though it remains unclear what caused the sinkhole.

A driver blew through the barriers, causing heavy damage to the vehicle, earlier Thursday morning after authorities shut down the roadway.

The occupants fled on foot when the car got stuck.

Motorists are urged to use caution in the area. Detours have since been put in place.
