Thanks for the heads-up. I'm planning to go to my Hillsgrove camp this weekend. Haven't heard any reports in that area??

220 from north of Dushore to north of New Albany is a mess. It was closed Saturday between New Albany and Monroeton. alternate routes were not much better. That resulted in way to many cars on narrow mountain roads. As for the 4 way intersections with no stop signs. Stop. I actually waited for 8 cars to go thru at and intersection I dont recall ever seeing another vehicle. it typically requires a brake bump only.

Last i hear it was open up through Forksville.
You can go to the state website https://www.511pa.com/
They keep it updated with the latest closing when the weather is bad.
There is an email list you can sign up for and you will get email updates on the road closures in the area.

If you try to map your route though google maps, it will take you around closed roads.

Used to run up 220 to the Sayre area a lot back in the early 70s, when my first wife's uncle lived there. Hadn't been up that way since her uncle's family moved to Palmyra in the mid 70s.

Six or seven years ago, drove over Rt. 6 coming back from my camp, to visit a buddy that lives below Wyalusing and came back down Rt. 220 on my way home.

Struck me that the road hadn't changed a bit since the 1970s. Same low areas that sometimes flooded back in the 70s, still flood today.

Rt. 850 in Perry County heading towards Loysville, same thing. There's a low spot that always gets closed when Shermans Creek floods. Been like that as long as I can remember, but PADOT had never made an effort to elevate low spots, so floods don't close one of the major roads in the area.

Instead of taking Rt 87 from Montoursville..... for a more scenic route to camp I sometimes take rt 220 North through Hughesville, Picture Rocks and just after Tivoli and take the Deer Lake Road up over the mountain which turns into Ogdonia Road and connects Rt 87 just south of Hillsgrove near the DCNR Ranger Station. May avoid that back route this weekend.

87 and 220 are open.


I was told the road between Nordmont and Jamison is still closed.

There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn't true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.
