SR 372 Re-Opens to all traffic

Motorists that use SR 372, eastbound from SR 10 may now resume their normal travel.  Severe storms Wednesday evening brought down numerous trees, telephone poles and wires along SR 372, east of Parkesburg Borough.  Storm damage forced the closure of East First Avenue, between Parkesburg and Stottsville, from Wednesday at 8PM, until this afternoon.  Crews from all of the major utilities were on hand to clear the damage.  The Borough's Emergency Management Coordinator reported all clear, just before 1:00PM. 

Police remind all motorists that drivers who drive through/around posted signs, barricades, around cones, and bypass fire police may be cited for several traffic infractions, costing the violator hundreds of dollars in fines.  Don't drive around barricades.... your safety and the welfare of emergency crews are then compromised, leading to additional dangers for everyone. 

Drive safe!
