EPHRATA, Pa. (WHTM) – Residents displaced by a sinkhole in Ephrata still don’t know when they’ll return home as crews continue working in the area.
According to Ephrata Police Chief William Harvey, “great progress” was made over the weekend at Pine and Park streets where the sinkhole formed last week.
All the bad soil was excavated and 100 yards of concrete was poured, along with stone added to build the necessary foundation.
There is no timeline for completion at this time, Chief Harvey said Monday.
Geotechnical testing will be completed in the area soon.
The borough is working on a long-term housing solution while some residents are displaced.
