Mill Creek MetroParks Seeks Public Comment for Road Resurfacing Project

(Youngstown) Mill Creek MetroParks is soliciting public comment for an upcoming improvement project. Memorial Hill Drive, the historic entrance to Mill Creek Park, stretches from Glenwood Avenue to West Glacier Drive.  The proposed rehabilitation project will improve safety and driving conditions for vehicular traffic, preserve the roadway’s original function, and restore the user experience along Memorial Hill Drive in Mill Creek Park.

 The project consists of furnishing labor, materials and equipment necessary to replace the existing asphalt roadway.  Planing of the existing asphalt concrete between curbs and installation of new asphalt concrete courses will address deteriorated driving surfaces and improve surface drainage.  The roadway will be temporarily closed to vehicular traffic during construction of the project.

 The project is substantially funded through the Ohio Department of Transportation’s (ODOT) Park District Road Improvement Fund.

 Public comment will be received by the MetroParks through Friday, February 12, 2016.  Please submit comments to: Mill Creek MetroParks; RE: Memorial Hill Drive; P.O. Box 596; Canfield, Ohio 44406-0596 or by email to

 The project is anticipated to commence in the summer of 2016. Please call 330-702-3000 with questions.
