A detour is in place for a popular bike path in Mahoning County.

Work on turnpike bridges over the Mill Creek bike path in Austintown closed off the path.

Now, a temporary detour is open around the construction project, just south of the Kirk Road Trailhead.

Work on the bridges began last summer. The project should be done later this year.

When it’s all done, a cement tunnel will be in place under the turnpike for bike riders.
