MOUNT VERNON — The Mount Vernon Avenue bridge is scheduled to be closed today for repairs. The repairs are part of the Mount Vernon Avenue resurfacing project and will take about one day to complete. The bridge will be closed from about 7 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Mount Vernon Safety-Service Director Dave Glass, filling in for Mayor Richard Mavis at his weekly meeting with the News, said paving on Mount Vernon Avenue is scheduled to begin Monday and should be done by the end of the week.
The paving will not start until after classes begin at Mount Vernon High School in the morning, and will end before classes get out in the afternoon, Glass said.
Mount Vernon Avenue makes up the majority of the city’s street resurfacing program this year, Glass said, but they hope to do more in 2013. Glass said they are proposing to council to take part of the money from next year’s resurfacing program to use as the local match for a grant from the Ohio Public Works Commission so that next year $800,000 in paving can be completed.
