Update from Whitpain Township on status of roads

Whitpain Township provided an update this afternoon on the state of the township’s roads post-storm. The township reports that during the height of the storm, ten roadways were closed due to flooding.

As of this September 2nd at approximately 3:30 p.m. the roads still impacted are Mount Pleasant Avenue and Narcissa Road, which are still closed

The township reports Mount Pleasant Avenue near the bridge over the Wissahickon Creek sustained significant flood damage. Emergency repairs started earlier today, but the damage is significant and will take several days to fully repair.

A large tree is tangled in wires and is blocking Narcissa Road. The tree will be removed once the power lines are de-energized.
