2 sinkholes open up on Murfreesboro trail

Posted: Updated:
MURFREESBORO, TN (WSMV) -

Two sinkholes have opened up in the same area of Murfreesboro within the last week.

The latest crater opened up along the Gateway Trail and swallowed a lamp post. Crews just repaired a different hole in a nearby lake last week.

The city engineer told the Daily News Journal that the problem could come from a leaking water line between ponds at the Gateway Island off Medical Center Parkway.

A portion of the Gateway Trail is closed until crews decide how to deal with the latest sinkhole.
