A hole that opened in a road last Friday in Lackawanna County is getting bigger.

Experts from the state said the hole on Keystone Avenue in Peckville was 25 feet deep and 25 feet across when they examined it Friday.

Now PennDOT officials said the hole has doubled in size, growing to 50 deep and 28 feet across.

Crews tried to file the subsidence Monday with concrete from seven full-size concrete trucks but the hole was too deep.

A geologist is now expected to inspect the hole.
