Montgomery County Road Reopens Morning After Mudslide

Balligomingo Road Mudslide

The morning after a partial mudslide closed a Montgomery County road, crews reopened the roadway Wednesday.

The slide closed Balligomingo Road between Portland Road and Front Street (Route 23) in West Conshohocken, said West Conshohocken police Tuesday afternoon.

On Wednesday morning shortly before 11 a.m., police announced the roadway was once again open.

You could hear trees in the area cracking the day before, said police on the scene.

The exact cause of the slide wasn’t clear. The area saw on and off rain – heavy at times – throughout the day Tuesday as a nor’easter struck the region. Crews closed the same stretch of road during a big storm last summer.
