Large Sinkhole Forces Closure Of Clarksville Parkway

Posted: Updated:

CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. - A large sinkhole has forced the closure of a busy highway in Clarksville.

The westbound lanes of Purple Heart Parkway near Fort Campbell Boulevard and Jordan Road remained closed Monday morning after a 20-foot hole opened up overnight.

Crews from the Tennessee Department of Transporation were on the scene Monday morning trying to determine the cause, as well as work on a fix.

It was unclear when the parkway would reopen, but motorists were encouraged to find an alternate route. Detours have been set up by Clarksville Police and the Tennessee Department of Transportation.
