MOUNT VERNON — Work should begin Monday morning on the short bicycle trail segment from the old railroad trestle, behind Creno’s and to the small bridge over Dry Creek, City Engineer Brian Ball reported at the mayor’s weekly press briefing Friday. The link will take the bike path out of the Creno’s parking lot.
Much of the cost is being paid by a NatureWorks grant that was originally received for building a fence along the path beside the west lake at Ariel-Foundation Park.
Utilities Director Mathias Orndorf announced that, weather permitting, residents along both sides of Mulberry Street from Calhoun to Pleasant, and including all of Lamartine, will experience a water outage Wednesday morning. He said the city needs to fix a fire hydrant, replace a water valve and fix another valve. The outage could last several hours and a boil advisory will be in effect for 24 hours.
Notices of the outage will also be placed on WENS and Facebook, and door tags will be distributed.
