Drivers headed through Penn Township should avoid Paintertown Road between Route 130 and Simpson Road, where a section of the road has begun to subside.

Township public works director Scott Fodi said police were notified about the road by a motorist on Thursday morning. PennDOT crews are on the scene, as it is a state-maintained road.

The large crack appeared in the area of 1149 Paintertown Road, according to township officials.
