Steady rains bring flooding along the Wissahickon, plus hazardous road conditions on Chemical Road

Whitemarsh Township reports that the flood gates have been lowered in the area of Wissahickon Creek due to flooding. Stenton Avenue is closed between Flourtown Road and Mill Road. West Valley Green Road is closed between Stenton and Cricket. Skippack Pike is also closed between Bethlehem Pike and Mathers Lane. There was steady rain throughout the day.

The Montgomery County Active Incident system also shows hazardous road conditions alone Chemical Road. A source with knowledge of the situation tells that it looks like a portion of the road is sinking and PennDOT has been alerted. Earlier this month PennDOT closed lanes on Chemical Road to fix a sinkhole.
