Raining generic water

Asheville Pulbic Works announced Saturday morning that several Biltmore Village streets have been re-opened.

The Swannanoa River was predicted to crest at 8 p.m. Friday, which caused the City to issue an alert advising people in the Biltmore Village area to seek higher ground. 

Many streets in the village, including a portion of Hendersonville Road, were closed because of flooding. 

Crews worked overnight to clean debris from streets so that they could re-open streets.

According to Asheville Public Works, the following streets have been re-open:

  • Brook Street
  • Sweeten Creek (U.S. 25A)
  • Thompson Street
  • Hendersonville Road
  • Swan Street
  • All Souls Crescent
  • Biltmore Plaza
  • Azalea Road
  • Caribou Road
  • Swannanoa River Road

Here is a list of current road closings:

  • Amboy Road
  • Inglewood Road at Elk Mountain Scenic Highway
  • Two sections of Kimberly Avenue are closed, due to downed powerlines. This includes an area next to Jones Elementary School and another at Country Club Road.
  • 102 Old Toll Road on Town Mountain is closed due to a landslide.
  • Riverside Drive at the train trestle bridge
  • Blue Briar Road is closed due to a landslide.
