GRAY, TN (WJHL) -

The test results are back on a sinkhole that formed in the parking lot of a school in Gray, Tennessee.

 

It's good news, according to a top school official.

 

Director of School Ron Dykes tells News Channel 11 that soil reports show there is no danger of additional sinkholes forming on school grounds.   The sinkhole that formed a few weeks ago has stopped expanding, Dykes said.

 

Crews will fill the hole with soil, stone, and cement.   

 

Dykes said the repairs will be complete in time for the fall semester.


 


 

 

More than a week after a big hole formed near a Tri-Cities school, the hole is still growing and school leaders say they still don't have any answers.

The hole is in the parking lot of Ridgeview Elementary school in Gray, TN. It started out as a sagging spot in the pavement. 

Washington County, Tennessee school leaders brought in geo-scientists to determine the cause.

As leaders wait for test results -- parents are growing anxious. 

"It actually scared me when they said it was here and I'm scared to death of him being near it because you don't know if he'll fall in or even worse you know," said Ron White, a parent at Ridgeview Elementary.

Director of Schools Ron Dykes told News Channel 11 he hopes to get test results back in as soon as two days.
