Route 224 in Canfield will be closed between Cardinal Drive and State Route 446 beginning Wednesday, June 8 at 7:00 a.m.

The closure is due to emergency street repairs.

According to Canfield City Manager, Wade Calhoun, there was a failure in the street, with temporary plates in place for about a week. Repair was scheduled as soon as a contractor could mobilize to the area.

The road will reopen as soon as the work has been completed and is expected to take approximately eight hours. 

While the construction is going on, drivers are asked to avoid the area, but if travel in the area is required, drivers should plan to take the detour route.
