Parts of Front Street in downtown Youngstown are closed for vault repairs.

According to Youngstown Deputy Director of Public Works, Chuck Shasho, this closure is due to repairs to one of FirstEnergy vaults. This work is being done near the intersection of Market Street and East Front Street.

Shasho tells 21 News this is not part of the ongoing Downtown beautification project and that this work was the reason this section of the roadway hasn't been repaved.

Shasho says the roadway should be opened back up by March 20.
