In the aftermath of the devastating flash flooding that occurred last Saturday in Upper Makefield Township, residents and officials are grappling with the effects of the deluge on local roads.

According to Upper Makefield Township police, citing PennDOT, Taylorsville Road is expected to be reopened to the public by the upcoming weekend.

Taylorsville Road has been closed since the flash flood caused damage.

Police said PennDOT has been implementing repairs and expects to complete the necessary repairs by Friday afternoon or evening.

However, the news for Washington Crossing Road (Route 532) is not as promising.

The section of Washington Crossing Road between Meadowview Drive and Wrightstown Road will remain closed for repairs for an estimated two weeks, police said.

The section of roadway has been reported to have sustained extensive damage during the flash flooding, making the restoration process more complex.

As of Thursday morning, police said PennDOT crews were already onsite to rebuild the roadway.

River Road reopened Tuesday after damage was repaired.
