PennDOT works to whittle the list, but some roads remain impassable.

Portions of the following state-maintained roads in Lehigh County remain closed as of 9 a.m Nov. 4, according to PennDOT.  Most of the closures are because of downed wires, trees or utility poles from Hurricane Sandy.

One Lower Macungie Patch reader has this comment which comes from the fact that he or she lives in this neighborhood: "Brookdale Road between Mertztown and Elm roads in Lower Macungie Township is closed due to a downed utility" is false. Brookdale Rd between Weilers Rd and Schaeffer Run Rd is closed , and Weilers Rd between Creamery Rd and Mertztown Rd is closed due to downed utility wires. Thanks so much to this reader! Readers, please add any other roads you know are closed. And thank you so much!
