Bath & North East Somerset Council are advising people plan their journeys between 16-19th September as the A37 through Pensford will be closed to allow essential resurfacing works to take place.
The closure will start at 7pm Friday 16th September and the road will remain closed until the works are completed early morning Monday 19th September.
Bath & North East Somerset Council will take advantage of the road closure to complete additional road patching repairs, repainting road lines and markings and coordinating with BT to allow them to carry out street works which will prevent future disruption.
There may be some delays to traffic. Diversion routes for traffic will be in place and advanced notices have been positioned along the route to warn road users of the road closure.
The council expects there to be higher than usual volumes of traffic passing through Stanton Drew while these resurfacing works take place and advise planning any journeys ahead of time to avoid delays.

If you missed the public meeting in Pensford, here is a further chance to find out more.
POKE is representing our local communities to fight the proposed supersize industrial scale food digester plant between Pensford and Keynsham. If approved, this plant would have potential to blight our local roads and quality of life.
Although the local council unanimously refused the original planning application, it is now necessary to fight an appeal lodged by the developer. This appeal will be determined by a government inspector (not by our local council).
This is an important meeting for anyone with concerns about this development. If you want to help preserve your local environment and quality of life, please do attend:
Date: Thursday (28th July)
