Sinkhole opens up next to State Route 88 roadway in Cortland


CORTLAND, Ohio (WKBN) – The recent weather conditions have caused a lot of potholes to form in roads across the Mahoning Valley.

But, something a little bigger opened up Sunday afternoon just off of Mosquito Lake in Cortland.

A sinkhole formed near Mecca Cones & Coneys along State Route 88 east around 2:30 p.m.

The Ohio Department of Transportation looked at the sinkhole to work on a strategy to repair the area. They say a crew will be out next week to make sure there are no utility lines near it.

ODOT plans to repair the sinkhole next week.
