BALTIMORE — The Baltimore Department of Public Works has given an update regarding the Howard and Pratt Street sinkhole.

According to DPW, they will be prepping for work that will provide a more safe and stable construction area.

Our goal is to begin opening some traffic lanes on Howard and Pratt by end of next week.

A DOT worker was sent to University of Maryland Shock Trauma after a fire and partial collapse while working underground last week. A man was doing electrical work in one of the vaults by Pratt and Howard streets when a fire broke out and the tunnel began to collapse.
