Columbia Avenue remains closed in Sinking Spring

Sinking Spring sinkhole update

SINKING SPRING, Pa. - A busy road in Sinking Spring remains closed so crews can make emergency repairs under the railroad tracks.

Columbia Avenue is closed from Hull Street to Woodrow Avenue.

Crews on scene told 69 News on Friday that a water main break created a sinkhole near the tracks. However, a supervisor with Berks County Communications now says the source of the closure is the railroad gate.

Drivers are urged to avoid the area.

Sinking Spring police told 69 News that the road would remain closed through Sunday, and might open Monday at the earliest.
