Portion of Crum Road closing for 60 days

Road closures

AUSTINTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) — A portion of a road in Austintown Township is closing this weekend.

The Mahoning County Commissioners approved a road closure for Crum Road between Meridian Road and Four Mile Run Road, effective Saturday. Crews will be reconstructing the entire roadway and changing the asphalt road into concrete.

Workers started the nearly $1.1 million project last month and are now to the point where they have to close off the road.

“There’s businesses there expanding, specifically Roth Brothers is located there. There’s a lot of truck traffic coming through there and the road is just getting beat up,” said Randy Partika of the Mahoning County Engineer’s Office.

The road will reopen in 60 days, but crews will still have to do some extra work. The project should be completed by Dec. 1.
