Mill Creek MetroParks announces winter road closures

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – Mill Creek MetroParks has announced the closure of several roads for the winter season.

Effective Nov. 17, the following roads 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 closed to vehicular traffic, these roads are available for recreational use for hiking, cross country skiing and sledding. Aside from recreational opportunities, benefits of winter road closures include cost savings associated with snow/ice removal as well as a reduction of negative environmental impacts from deicing salt, according to the Mill Creek MetroParks marketing department.

All roads will reopen in the spring when weather permits.
