Big Woody's and Other Businesses Still Closed
One week after massive sinkhole opens up repairs are incomplete.
One week after a massive sinkhole opened up behind the Big Woody’s Sports Bar and Grill, businesses in the Sullivan Trial strip remain closed.
Signage outside the Supercuts says the business remains closed due to “structural damage”.
Workers have been working to repair a water line that ruptured on Aug. 28 causing a sinkhole to open up at 1855 Sullivan Trail, right behind Big Woody’s. The five businesses located in the lot, including Big Woody’s were shut down by the township and gas lines were cut off. It is not believed that Hurricane Irene was to blame for the water line rupture.
On the website for Big Woody’s, officials for the four-chain restaurant posted an announcement saying the location won’t be open until further notice. The statement goes on to say, “We are hoping that this unfortunate circumstance can be resolved as quick as possible. We will do our best to update you through our website, as much as possible. Our three other locations in Allentown are still open for business and if you have any questions or concerns please feel free to email us at BigWoodys4@yahoo.com. Than you and hopefully we will be up and running again in the near future.”
No one from the restaurant could be reached for comment.
