BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) -- The sinkhole that swallowed up eight cars at the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green could be partially filled in with plans for a bridge built over the top of the section left open.

National Corvette Museum spokeswoman Katie Frassinelli says the facility hopes to keep a 25-by-45-foot section that's about 30 feet deep with a bridge over it as a tourist attraction.

Frassinelli told WDRB-TV in Louisville that officials wanted to leave the Skydome room as is, for people attending their 20th anniversary celebration at the end of the month.
  
The sinkhole in February did more than $1 million in damage to cars that fell on rocks. The cars were eventually pulled out of the hole.
  
The Skydome area will close in September, so repairs can begin.
