Presque Isle State Park Reopens After Weather-Related Closure

Posted: Updated:

Presque Isle State Park reopened around 4 p.m. Friday after the winter weather forced it to close for most of the day.

Many drivers were unaware of the closing and had to turn around at the gate.

A power line came down near the entrance to the park and posed a safety hazard.

Crews are also working to clear away the snow from the roads and parking lots.

The snow brought down many trees and limbs. Ice was also falling off trees.

The Tom Ridge Environmental Center remained open all day.
