Sinkhole in Spring Twp.

SPRING TWP., Pa. - A massive sinkhole in Berks County has forced one facility in the Reading Health System to shut down for the day.

The hole opened up Saturday night and crews have been working to repair the damage since then.

The hole is located outside the Health System's Spring Ridge Campus on Keiser Boulevard in Spring Township.

Officials said they had to shut down the electric and gas utilities so crews could work to repair the hole.

The facility is closed Monday.

"We've been in the process, we've contacted physicians and patients that have been affected. Those that we can redirect or reschedule to another Reading Health System facility, we've done so. And others we will reschedule," said Mark McNash,

Officials said they expect to reopen the Spring Township campus on Tuesday.

Another massive sinkhole in Berks County opened up on May 1 in a shopping center parking lot in Exeter Twp.
