It is advised that if close to this closure cannot be avoided, to use Henderson Road and Saulin Boulevard to move around the closure. This closure is expected to last through the morning rush hour on Tuesday, July 11th.
Update from PennDOT –
U.S. 202 (Dekalb Pike) was closed just after 8:00 PM tonight following the discovery of a sinkhole during a reported water outage in the area. The highway will remain closed in both directions until roadway engineers can determine the extent of the damage and develop a plan to repair the concrete roadway. PA American Water is currently repairing the water main before roadway reconstruction can begin.
