Washed out Kinsman road could be closed for weeks.

Posted: Updated:
KINSMAN, Ohio -

It could be two or three weeks before a road washed out by high water on Sunday is open to traffic again.

A bridge along Kinsman Pymatuning Road was swept away by the rising waters of Stratton Creek after an evening downpour.

As a result, the road is closed between State Route 7 and Delin Thomas Road. 

Trumbull County Highway Superintendent, Gregg Alberini. Sr tells 21 News that it's going to take a week to and 10 days to fix the road. But he expects that it will remain closed for two to three weeks.

Alberini estimates the repair will cost between $25,000 to $30,000.

The suggested detour is south on State Route 7, east on State Route 5 and north on Delin Thomas Road.
