Pipeline construction caused sinkholes where Energy Transfer is boring near Lincoln Highway and the Chester Valley Trail crossing. The sinkholes follow the construction path of the bore and did not expose any operating pipelines. The PA Public Utility Commission is investigating whether there could be voids underground that have not yet opened up as sinkholes and could pose a risk to any of the infrastructure in that area.
As part of the investigation, crews working for Energy Transfer are conducting geophysical tests around the Chester Valley Trail. As a result, the CVT is closed near the intersection with Lincoln Highway. The CVT will remain closed in that area until the investigation is complete.
