Willow Street at the French Creek Parkway has reopened. PennDot continues to clear ice from South Main St / Rt. 322 between Linden and Franklin Pike. It appears that some standing water remains beneath the ice, which may impact the reopening of the road.
The City continues to coordinate efforts with Crawford County, PennDOT, and surrounding municipalities to keep traffic flowing and respond to changing conditions. Motorists are asked to be patient and to observe all road closure signs.
The following streets remain closed:
• South Main St. / Rt. 322 between Linden Street and Franklin Pike remains CLOSED
• Spring Street between Lincoln Ave. and Cussewago Road/Route 102 remains CLOSED
The following DETOUR route in and out of the City is available:
• City inbound and outbound: Route 102 (Cussewago Road) → Dunham Road → Roger’s Ferry Road → Lincoln Avenue → Spring Street / Spring St. Bridge
According to the National Weather Service there will be a warm-up in temperature this weekend followed by rain, potentially heavy. With the melt of the snowpack from yesterday’s snowfall and additional rain, there could be flooding comparable to last weekend. The City is closely monitoring the situation and will continue to post flooding updates and road closures on the City’s website at www.cityofmeadville.org and the City’s Facebook page, City of Meadville – Office of the City Manager (search Facebook for @cityofmeadville).
