Sinkhole again in Allentown, Pennsylvania: this time it closes Lehigh Parkway South


A sinkhole developed in the 2400 block of Lehigh Parkway South, near the entrance of Mack Truck Customer Center late Sunday, according to Allentown police.

The 15-foot-wide hole has been stabilized but traffic is being diverted because of the presence of gas mains under the road in the area, police said.

The hole is also about 50 yards from the main entrance to the Mack Trucks facility. Mack workers are being diverted to the Oxford Drive entrance of the Allentown Recycling Center and then to the rear entrance of the Mack facility, police said
