Flooding causes Monroeville road closures
Several Monroeville roads were closed Thursday due to flooding.
Monroeville administration sent out Nixle alerts that notified residents of the following road closures:
• Old Frankstown Road near Hochberg Road;
• Abers Creek Road;
• Westbound section of the Triboro Expressway before the Patton Street exit;
• The crossover from Route 286 to Route 22;
• Thompson Run Road;
• Logans Ferry Road starting at Edgemeade Drive.
Other warnings were issued for Route 48 between MacBeth Drive and Broadway Boulevard as “several areas along this road are flooded and barely passable.” The intersection of Stroschein and Pitcairn roads was also flooded.
Except Abers Creek Road, all roads were reopened by 2 p.m., Police Chief Doug Cole said.
There were no reported injuries due to flooding, Cole said.
“We had our core areas that flooded, and some people that had to leave their cars and we towed them. We’re expecting more rain, so that’s something to keep an eye out,” Cole said.
Monroeville remains under a flood watch from 2 to 8 p.m. Thursday, according to the National Weather Service. More rain is forecast to fall after 5 p.m.
The forecast shows partly sunny skies Friday with a high of 80 degrees.
