A two-foot-wide sinkhole has appeared in a private alley in the Antiquity neighborhood, just off South Street next to the covered bridge.
The small circle of pavement collapsed next to a storm drain on Point of View Lane over the weekend. The road is a little-used alley behind a circle of 11 houses on Advocates Court, near the bridge.
Barricades have been erected to prevent cars from using the road, which could make it difficult for some residents to reach their garages.
Town officials said Point of View Lane is a private alley, and is maintained by the developer.
We’re attempting to contact the developer and will update this story when we learn more.
The cave-in has raised concerns among some residents who remember a massive sinkhole that forced the closing of nearby Canal Street for 7 months in 2013.
