Pasco County Sinkhole in New Port Richey Reopens Days After Efforts to Fill It

PASCO COUNTY, Fla. – Pasco County Emergency Management is reporting the sinkhole along Spring Haven Boulevard in New Port Richey has reopened and grown, despite efforts by the private property owners to fix the hole.

A sinkhole repair company filled the hole Thursday, January 7, and four days later, on Monday, January 11, the fill material started to collapse back into the hole.

Additionally, the hole has grown about another 4 feet on the north side and is now about 50 feet wide.  The sinkhole still remains wholly on private property, and the private property’s contractor is working on additional efforts to fix the hole.

Pasco County continues to monitor the area, including the right-of-way, and one southbound lane of Little Road remains closed.
