    "Highway 28, there is a large amount of water coming off the Troy Hill area behind the barrier. It's carrying a lot of debris with it which covers the inlets very quickly," Senior Highway Maintenance Manager Lori Musto said.

    PennDOT officials said the clogged drains could be one reason for the flooding. Another could be illegal dumping in Troy Hill.
