Sinkhole closes section of Midtown Memphis road

The City of Memphis says the sinkhole opened while crews were doing excavation work.

MEMPHIS, Tennessee — Have you ever had a sinking feeling? McLean Boulevard in Midtown Memphis certainly did.

A sinkhole opened on McLean between Poplar Avenue and Overton Park Avenue Thursday while crews were doing excavation work. While the sinkhole was big enough to temporarily close the road, the city hopes it will be back open again Friday night.
