Logan Ferry project approved
Homes along Logan Ferry Road could start to see drainage improvements now that Murrysville Council approved plans to advance a roadway project.
Council members on Wednesday authorized an advertisement for bids for the improvement project on a 3.7-mile stretch of the road.
Improvements would include new inlets and pipes, construction of shoulders and curbs, repair of existing pavement and asphalt overlay.
Last year, state officials requested the municipally take back ownership of the stretch.
Murrysville will receive $1.77 million and annual payments of $14,684 from the state.
The section of Logan Ferry Road crosses Route 286 and extends from the Plum Borough line to Plum Line Nursery. There are 1,200 homes less than a quarter-mile from the road, chief administrator Jim Morrison said.
About 2,600 vehicles use the stretch daily, he said.
The annual maintenance will be about $10,500, Morrison said.
Murrysville has previously accepted seven other roads from the state under similar agreements.
