Police are warning motorists of heavy delays on Route 19 in Cranberry because of construction and the grand opening of the Field & Stream store.

The combination of the grand opening, which will extend through the weekend, and construction on Route 79 may cause significant backups, township officials said Friday. Cranberry police said there were delays Friday morning, but traffic flow had improved in the afternoon.

Butler County emergency dispatchers also reported heavy traffic and significant delays in the area, including Route 228.

Officials are telling motorists to avoid Route 19 between Rochester and Freeport roads.
