Plugged up culvert appears responsible for flooding in south Meadville

MEADVILLE — Work continues at Pine Alley and Market Street near McDonald’s in downtown Meadville as city crews attempt to locate and remove a blockage in a culvert that channels Neason Run under the city.

The blockage is the likely cause of flooding in that area and as far south as Smock Bridge. The roadway has been cut open to expose the culvert and debris are being removed and trucked away.

Work started early this morning after heavy rain between 7:30 and 8:30 a.m. Roads in the immediate area of Pine and Park have been closed and will remain closed for an unknown period of time.

Meadville police report no injuries related to the flooding, according to Tom Liscinski, assistant chief.
