Nearby Sinkhole Closes Part Of Monocacy Blvd. In Frederick

Motorists are urged to find alternate routes

Frederick, Md. (KM) – The southbound lane of Monocacy Boulevard is closed from East Patrick Street to East South Street until further notice. The Frederick City Department of Public Works says a sinkhole has opened up near the roadway.  But it’s  not in the road itself.

The northbound lane of Monocacy Boulevard in that area is not affected by this closure.

Motorists should find alternate routes until that stretch of Monocacy Boulevard reopens. Drivers traveling in that area should also expect delays.
