Walnut Street in Springdale reopened Wednesday afternoon after a two-day closure for emergency repairs.

Walnut Street in Springdale reopened Wednesday afternoon after being closed since Sunday.

A portion of Walnut Street at the intersection with Porter Street was damaged after heavy rains Saturday caused water to get into a seam and lift and crack some of the asphalt. Borough crews had to dig up the damaged area and repave it.

Carmen Canonico, head of Springdale’s roads department, said the borough got the asphalt needed to finish the emergency repairs on Wednesday morning. The asphalt order had been delayed Tuesday, which caused the street to be closed an extra day.

“We got it first thing this morning and it went right in,” Canonico said.

Crews began making emergency repairs Monday. About 30 homes were affected by the closure.

Canonico said the only thing left to do is to seal the edges of the asphalt once the temperature drops. He said they would have to wait for the next cool morning.

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.
