Would you believe a third time?
Two weeks after Northwood Avenue in Palmer Township was shut by a sinkhole, another one opened up Thursday, this time swallowing part of a Lowe’s truck, authorities said.
Palmer Township Police Chief Larry Palmer confirmed Thursday afternoon that another sinkhole has shut the road.
Sinkholes that shut Northwood Avenue, the key road connecting Forks Township to Palmer and Lower Nazareth townships, happened in early April and returned in early May.
The road was closed on a Thursday in early April due to a water main break that caused two sinkholes. Crews from Easton Suburban Water Authorityworked around the clock to fix and fill the sinkholes and get the road reopened three days later.
