Portion of Mill Creek Bike Trail detour opens

Posted: Updated:
AUSTINTOWN TWP., Ohio -

With warmer weather on the horizon, Valley bicyclists are in luck. 

On Tuesday, a detour for the Mill Creek Bike Trail opened that runs adjacent to the closed portion of Kirk Road. 

The portion of the trail between Kirk Road and Herbert Road has been closed since July 2018.

The detour is new asphalt paving and is separated from vehicular traffic by a concrete barrier.

For cyclists starting at Kirk Road, the detour begins at the Kirk Road Trailhead and for those traveling north the detour begins at the Turnpike bridge project.

Approaching the turnpike project from the south, the detour is routed to the west under the Ohio Turnpike overpass on Kirk Road and then goes eastward along the southern side of the turnpike until it meets the bike trail again.
