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.
After the system is in place we’ll repair the underground utilities, including water, sewer, storm, and conduits.
Our goal is to begin opening some traffic lanes on Howard and Pratt by end of next week. https://t.co/jUzmc7Px8a

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.
