Sinkhole Outside LP Field

After suffering $3 million in damages due to flooding in May, a 30-foot wide, 5 to 6-foot deep sinkhole on the concrete plaza that surrounds LP Field has Metro Sports Authority Executive Director Emmett Edwards concerned.

"This may well be the tip of the iceberg," Edwards tells Brandon Gee of the Nashville Business Journal.

The reason for the Edwards' concern is that LP Field General Manager Walter Overton said that substandard materials were found beneath the plaza. Overton added that the sinkhole may have been caused by poor construction, not the flooding, and that other areas around the stadium may be at risk for similarly-sized sinkholes.

"What has to happen is some expert has to come in and assess that situation," Overton said.

Gee adds that because the sinkhole may have been caused by a pre-existing condition, the city of Nashville's insurance may not cover the repairs.
