Plymouth Road Reopens After Sinkhole Repair in Montgomery County

Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT)

PLYMOUTH TWP, PA — The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) today announced that Plymouth Road has reopened in both directions between Rittenhouse Square and Butler Pike. The road was opened this morning following extensive sinkhole repair work.

Northbound Plymouth Road was initially closed on Friday, May 3, due to pavement settlement. More issues arose, prompting the closure of the southbound lanes on May 14 to allow for expanded excavation.

PennDOT’s contractor addressed the problem by using flowable fill to pack the void created by the sinkhole. Once the fill reached the necessary elevation, workers installed the roadway base and completed the final paving.

Commuters can now travel on Plymouth Road without detours. Motorists are encouraged to remain cautious as traffic resumes normal flow.
