PALMYRA, Pa. (WHTM) – For the second time in as many months, PennDOT will close Route 422 in an area of North Londonderry Township that has been plagued for years by a recurring sinkhole.
The eastbound and westbound lanes of Route 422 will be closed Friday, beginning at 7 a.m.
Engineers plan a drilling inspection in the westbound lane near the Sinkhole Saloon and Palmyra Bowling Center, where a substantial depression developed in mid-May.
The depression has continued to settle, according to a PennDOT news release.
Depending on the findings, the roadway will either open by the end of the day or remains closed until repairs are completed.
A major repair plan is scheduled to begin on July 9.
