Bath Road in Bristol Township near the municipal complex is scheduled to close through Aug. 23.
PennDOT announced the closure between Eugene Drive and Brookside Avenue in late July so crews can work on road access for the new recreation expansion.
A new turf football field sits nearby the roadway and will be joined by more facilities in the coming months.
“We have a spray park coming in, an amphetitar, and football field coming in and that should be done in October,” Township Council President Craig Bowen said. “We did that without raising taxes so we’re chipping away.”
The detour is quite lengthy, as it directs motorists through Oxford Valley Road, New Falls Road and Route 413.
