Police closed a portion of Chicopee Street in the area of McKinstry Avenue following a wave of severe weather that passed through the city Tuesday evening.
Chicopee police closed the road before 8 p.m. but it had reopened by about 9:30 p.m.
Officer Michael Wilk told Western Mass News that the road was closed due to flooding. The storm drains could not keep up with the amount of rainfall that had fallen in a short period of time.
The road was also closed due to downed trees and wires.
