News Release

For Immediate Release

Mt. Vernon Street Closure

Mt. Vernon Street will be closed from West Bypass (RTE 160) to Suburban Avenue for a period of up to 45 days for street and stormwater improvements to be made west of the West Bypass. These improvements will include new turn lanes, expanded storm sewers, upgraded traffic signals, and a new sidewalk, and are funded by the ¼ cent capital improvement tax.

Detours will be in place and every effort will be made to minimize the time of closure on Mt. Vernon Street and at times, the intersection of Mt. Vernon Street and Suburban Avenue.

Work will begin at 7 a.m. on Tuesday, July 10, 2012, and will end by August 15, 2012.
