4th sinkhole opens up in Palmer Twp.


One local truck crew was a little late on their delivery in Northampton County on Thursday.

A sinkhole opened beneath a Lowe's truck in front of 2342 Northwood Ave. in Palmer Township. No one was hurt.

Northwood Avenue, between Van Buren and Tatamy roads, is expected to remain closed for the next few days, PennDOT said.


In the meantime, traffic is being detoured onto Tatamy Road, Park Avenue, Route 248 and Van Buren Road.

The area has been plagued by sinkholes in the past.
