WASHINGTON TWP. — Part of Alex-Bell Road is planned to be closed for a few weeks, creating a traffic detour starting later this month.

The road will be shut down between McEwen Road and Paragon Road for work at the Paragon intersection, according to the Montgomery County Engineer’s Office.

The closing is tentatively set for Sept. 20 – weather permitting - and is expected to last about two weeks according to the county.
