“It was a little chaotic. With so many streets being blocked and worked on it’s difficult to navigate downtown Mount Vernon. I’m a little tired of all the construction.”

Theresa Kouba, Mount Vernon

“It’s a little close, but that’s to be expected. It’s just sort of hectic. It’s busy. The traffic is pretty heavy anymore anyhow and it’s just a little heavier now. It didn’t [bother me].”

Bob Beck, Mount Vernon

“The timing of the bad traffic with [the Dan Emmett Festival] seems to have amplified how bad [the traffic] is.”

Jacob Lehman, Mount Vernon

“[It was] Kind of a disaster. The construction is kind of frustrating,”

Ethan Buehrer, Mount Vernon

“I was on Harcourt Road, I sat there for over five minutes while they painted the line/are working on putting asphalt on the east side of the street. And the most fun was watching the people go past because you know some woman is just like irate, everyone is on their phone. It was very entertaining. [It didn’t bother me] at all.”

Tamara Flinn, Centerburg

“I shot in this way (from north of town) so I didn’t have any problems or anything.”

Olga Ellis, Danville
