(Youngstown, Ohio) Effective Monday, December 2, the following roads in Mill Creek Park will be closed to vehicular traffic for the winter:
- Chestnut Hill Drive, between Canfield Road and the Kirkmere Spur
- High Drive, between the Kirkmere Spur and West Cohasset Drive
- Calvary Run Drive, between Belle Vista Avenue and Milton Avenue
When snow and ice create slippery conditions, roadways with limited shoulders, lack of guardrails, and steep grades become increasingly hazardous for motorists. While closed to vehicular traffic, these roads are available for various recreational uses, such as hiking, bicycling, cross country skiing and sledding. Additional benefits of the road closures include cost savings associated with snow/ice removal as well as a reduction of negative environmental impacts from deicing salt.
All roads will reopen in the spring when weather permits. For more information, call the Mill Creek MetroParks Administrative Office at 330.702.3000.
