HIRAM -- State Route 700 in Hiram has been closed indefinitely by a sinkhole, according to the Ohio Department of Transportation.
The road is closed just south of state Route 82 on the way to Garrettsville.
ODOT blames the sinkhole on torrential rains received this summer.
The road is impassable for vehicles, and pedestrians should avoid the area as well, according to ODOT.
No timeframe has been established for completion of the repairs.
