Monroeville works to clean up flooded roads

Dillon Carr

Monroeville officials worked to clear several flooded roads in the aftermath of torrential rainfall Sunday night and early Monday.

Nearly three inches of rain fell in several areas in the Pittsburgh region. Water rose quickly, submerging vehicles and leaving roads inaccessible. The National Weather Service issued a flash flood warning for much of the region – including Monroeville – through 4 p.m.

The NWS forecasts more rain throughout the day but calls for partly sunny skies Tuesday with a high of 74 degrees.

As of 2:30 p.m. Monday, Davidson Road remained closed from Saltsburg to Old Frankstown roads. The intersection of Thompson Run Road and Old William Penn Highway was also closed.

Abers Creek Road, Hochberg Road at Old Frankstown Road, Edgemeade at Old Frankstown Road and Edgemeade at Logans Ferry Road all closed around 3:30 p.m.

Logans Ferry Road at Skyview Drive had standing water on the roadway and a fallen tree blocked McClure Road at Shangri La Drive as of Monday afternoon.

Those wanting to report flooding should leave a message with Public Works in person or via mail. The municipality posted to its website that the Public Works Department is experiencing issues with its phone system, namely its voice mail retrieval system.

“The Municipality has contacted Advent, the phone equipment company who installed and supports the phone system. They are working to remedy the voice mail problem,” said the post on Monroeville’s website.

The public works building is located at 200 Starr Drive.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
