Work on Murphy Road in Prospect begins


PROSPECT — Work has begun on relocating Murphy Road for a new banquet facility.

Drivers are encouraged to find an alternate route, Mayor Robert Chatfield said.

Murphy Road will be closed to traffic from Route 69 to Terry Road, he said. It will be closed through Friday, depending on the weather, he said.

The Geloso family is building a 30,000-square-foot facility called Aria Wedding and Banquet Facility by Villa Rosa. Chatfield said they have to relocate the road, install storm drains, and sanitary sewer mains, and the road will be shifted about 20 to 25 feet.
