Crews continue work on sinkhole at Lancaster County outlets

Lancaster

The hole that swallowed six vehicles at the Tanger Outlets in Lancaster County on Friday grew in size over the weekend, but officials believe it won’t get any larger.

Excavation crews were looking to dig at the site on Monday to fix the hole and find what caused it.

Alexis Mundy was one of the many spectators.

“It’s taking over four or five stores here,” Mundy said. “It’s much larger than I thought it was going to be.”

Cindy Boland and her daughter also came to check out the hole.

“We were wondering if our car would be safe,” Boland said.

According to Monica Trego, the general manager of the outlets in East Lampeter Township, officials and engineers met early on Monday morning and felt confident saying they thought the hole was done growing.

The hole opened in an area that was part of an expansion at the outlets last year, but now part of that expansion is underground.

“It’s pretty big,” Boland said. “I mean, it’s bigger than what I thought it was going to be.”
