Funeral services for Loganville Fire Chief Rodney Miller on Friday are expected to cause delays in and around the areas of New Salem, Seven Valleys and North Codorus Township, Southwestern Regional Police warned.

A large amount of fire equipment and traffic is expected to turn out for the services, and some roads could be closed, police said.

Viewings are set for 2 to 4 p.m. and 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday; the funeral begins at 10 a.m. Friday. Services will be held at Grace Fellowship Church, 1405 Seven Valleys Road.

Firefighter rites will be conducted by numerous fire departments, according to Miller's obituary.

Police ask people to try to find alternate routes on Friday around the time of the funeral.

Miller, 45, was struck and killed about 12:30 a.m. Saturday while directing traffic on Interstate 83 southbound near the Glen Rock exit.

A few minutes later, police arrested driver Matthew Scott Diehl, 32, of 39 Valley Road in Shrewsbury Township. He remains in York County Prison without bail, charged with homicide by vehicle while DUI and related offenses.

On Tuesday, state Sen. Mike Waugh, R-Shrewsbury, read a resolution on the senate floor honoring Miller's life and service as Loganville's longtime fire chief. The resolution passed unanimously.
