PennDOT reopens remaining Pa. roads closed by flooding

Posted: Updated:

PennDOT early Monday reopened the two remaining state-maintained roads closed since Friday's flooding in south central Pennsylvania.

The roads in York County - Route 182 between Indian Rock Dam Road and Croll School Road in Spring Garden Township and Route 616 between West College Avenue in North Codorus Township and Route 30 in West Manchester Township - reopened at 1 a.m. after maintenance crews worked late into the night to clean off mud and clear debris, PennDOT spokesman Greg Penny said.

At one time Friday evening, more than 60 state roads were closed due to flooding, most of them in York and Lancaster counties.

The majority of the roads reopened by Saturday morning after the flood waters receded.

In instances where the flood waters flowed against bridges, the roads remained closed until bridge inspection teams from PennDOT examined them and gave the okay to reopen them over the weekend.

Penny said none of the bridges suffered significant damage from the flood waters.
