Lower Makefield Township will likely be a little harder to navigate throughout the next two weeks. Makefield Road at the intersection with Big Oak Road will be closed, diverting more traffic to Pine Grove and Yardley-Morrisville Roads.

American Water Company will be replacing water pipes near Rock Run Creek. This will require motorists who take Makefield southbound to Big Oak to a left at Sutphin Road.

In all, the detour is more than two miles long and should add five minutes without traffic to any road trip through the area.
