Sink Hole Closes Old County Road

I'm amazed this hasn't happened sooner.

Maine roads and highways are like back roads in most places.

Hey....I've been here 17 I can complain!

"You can't get there form here"

Here's the deal...

Rockland — A large sinkhole opened quickly on Old County Road just across the street from the Rockland Golf Club, effectively closing the road until repairs can be made.

The hole, more like a pothole, was first noticed by a driver at approximately 4:30 p.m. and the Rockport Fire Department was notified. By the time firefighters arrived, the hole began to grow, and as it grew, the sounds from beneath the road sounded like waves crashing onto rocks.

"It sounded like Thunder Hole," said Rockland resident Valerie Wass, who, along with her husband, Eric, had traveled from Rockland on the Old County Road to a job site where their company was working. Thunder Hole is on the shore of Acadia National Park where when the seas are rough the waves crash into the rocks with a roar.
