September 19, 2018

Days Run Road closed at Bailies Run Road in East Deer Monday morning, Aug. 27, 2018. It is expected to be closed into late October while crews replace a bridge.

Drivers who use Days Run Road in East Deer will need to find other ways around the area for about the next two months.

The road closed at Bailies Run Road at 7 a.m. Monday, PennDOT said. It is expected to be closed through late October.

Crews from Joseph B. Fay will remove an existing bridge and replace it with a box culvert.

The posted detour is about nine miles long. From north of the closure:Take Days Run Road northDays Run Road becomes Kurn roadTurn left onto Creighton Russellton RoadCreighton Russellton Road becomes Bailies Run RoadFollow Bailies Run Road back to Days Run Road

Bakerstown Road, also known as Tarentum-Culmerville Road, had been closed since March while crews repaired a landslide and replaced a bridge.
