Readers: Canon-McMillan Area Roads 'Terrible'

Residents in Canonsburg, Cecil and North Strabane agreed: Friday's winter storm made area roads a mess!

The question was simple: How are the roads in your neighborhood.

And Canon-McMillan Patch’s Facebook friends’ answers were resounding: Terrible. Crappy. Untreated. Ridiculous.

“Reissing Road was horrible, the bus came down safe thank goodness!!!” Cecil Township’s Jen Swearman posted.

Rick Abruzzi took a more sarcastic approach to answering the question.

“What roads? Can’t see them with all the snow on them,” he wrote.

Several other readers said their roads hadn’t been touched by a plow as of early afternoon.

“Smithfield Street definitely hasn’t been touched,” Amber Sembrat wrote.

Still others said that while they were visited by a plow, it didn’t do them much good.

“Plow came through Georgetown Estates around 11:45 a.m.,” Marci Zaunick wrote. “You can barely tell we were even plowed. The hills on Georgetown Road headed in both directions are bad, hill by the church is worse than the one by Hahn Road.”

The winter storm that pummeled the area Friday morning also snared traffic on Interstate 79 near Canonsburg, where the road was restricted to one lane while emergency crews cleared the scene.

An accident in Cecil Township was also reported.

First responders in Muse said Millers Run Road was also closed for about 40 minutes Friday morning because of a vehicle crash in the 3000 block around 10:30 a.m. There was one minor injury reported.

Drive on Karmann road, Cecil township, and u feel like u r on an amusement park ride. That is if ur vehicle doesn't get sucked up in the holes all over the road. Where are the townships tax dollars going guys. For the roads where the supervisors live on. Take a look for yourselves

And another thing. Why should a resident living on Karmann Road purchase a load of gravel and put down on the road so they can drive on it. That's just not right. We pay our taxes and the township needs to pave that road. It's sad.

Karmann Road goes through a farm I suggest coming the other way as it is paved its Coal Run

PAvingwould cause too much runoff and pollute the land and streams with all the cow manure from he farm without adequate drainage, retention pond, etc Long story short don't buy gravel write to your local politician that's what they're there for. I kno one supervisor who lives in a plan his street is the worst of them all hasn't been paved in decades also Reissing sucks too despite its residents some of whom hold clout.
