A popular way to get to the Pittsburgh Mills mall through East Deer will be closed to traffic for 30 days beginning on Monday.

Murrayhill Road will be closed in both directions while crews with Gulisek Construction of Mt. Pleasant rebuild a concrete section of the road, from just below Old Murrayhill Road to about 400 feet before Freeport Road.

East Deer commissioners hired the company in March for the $273,000 project.

It was felt that closing the road “was the most efficient way to get the work done in a timely manner,” Commissioner Tony Taliani said.

“That road is in need of upgrade and repairs. We're happy we're able to do it at this time,” Taliani said. “There's going to be some inconvenience during the construction.”

A posted detour route will use Freeport Road to Riddle Run Road, said Mark Ondecko, a project manager with Gulisek Construction.

People who live at the top and bottom of Murrayhill Road will still be able to get to and from their homes. Emergency vehicles, such as a fire truck needing to get to a brush fire, will be able to get through, said Phillip Herman, a project manager with Senate Engineering, the township's engineering firm.

When the road reopens, work is expected to continue until the anticipated completion date of Aug. 31.

While crews work to mill and resurface the asphalt portions of the road, traffic will be limited to a single, alternating lane controlled by flaggers.

Traffic will then be able to get through, but there could be delays, Taliani said.
