For Immediate Release

Mt. Vernon to Reopen Wednesday

Mt. Vernon will reopen from West Bypass, (RTE 160), to the end of construction - West of the Suburban Avenue intersection - on Wednesday morning, Sept. 19, 2012. Please be aware of the additional lanes. The City would like to thank citizens for their patience, as the closure was longer than anticipated. Additional pavement replacement and very poor subgrade conditions added to the required amount of work which in turn extended the length of closure.
