Motorists in north central Pennsylvania are advised the two Tioga County roads remain closed in the area due to flooding or downed trees and utilities. Updates will be sent periodically.
- (Closed) Route 4007 (North Road) is closed at the bridge located northwest of Knoxville, Brookfield Township. The bridge carries North Road over North Brook Creek.
Route 4009 (Austinburg Road) between Route 249 and the New York State line at TR 103 in Brookfield Township.
PennDOT cautions motorists to never drive through flooded roadways, as it takes just two feet of fast-moving water to float a car. Anyone who drives around barriers intended to close a road can face increased penalties if emergency responders are called to rescue motorists who disregard traffic control signs.
