REOPENED: McNeilly Road
The popular route throughout Baldwin Township had a lengthy closure.
UPDATE (6:05 p.m.): The road has reopened.
UPDATE (3:40 p.m.): Route 88 is still closed at McNeilly Road. Water has receded, but there is about a half-inch of mud that Pennsylvania Department of Transportation crews are scraping up. Workers at a nearby Monro Muffler shop said that this is the fifth time in recent memory that this area has flooded. The workers said that, within a minute, the water rose 2 feet.
Heavy rain has led to flooding, which has caused McNeilly Road—from Route 88 to approximately Sussex Avenue—to close on Friday afternoon.
Emergency workers are on the scene trying to control water and direct cars away from the area.
Motorists may use Pearce Road/Dewalt Drive on the Baldwin Township-Mt. Lebanon border to get around the flooding.
