MOUNT VERNON — The High Street/Sandusky Street intersection is open again. Street Department Superintendent Tom Hinkle said during the mayor’s weekly press briefing that street workers finished painting the new lines this week. The detour signs were removed and the intersection was fully opened Friday morning.
The new control unit will not arrive until June, however, so the pedestrian buttons and the camera-activated sensors will not work. The intersection will be on a timed sequence until then.
The project came in “on time and on budget” said Safety-Service Director Joel Daniels.
