Snow pounding Poconos, Route 209 temporarily closed

POCONOS – Heavy wet snow has been falling for a few hours now with about six inches on the ground in Dingman Township. Many areas will get around a foot by the time the snow tapers off tonight.

NPS and MetEd have been working closely over the past several hours to remove downed trees and power lines that were the cause of the road closure on Route 209 between Route 739 and Milford. As of 4:00 p.m., the road is open to emergency vehicles only.
