MOUNT VERNON — Because of the dry weather this summer, the Coshocton Avenue widening and safety project may be completed earlier than expected.

Mayor Richard Mavis said he had been informed by City Engineer Cameron Keaton that the project may be done by Nov. 1 instead of Nov. 15 as was originally projected.

There was a slight problem this week, caused by an error in the project plans. Mavis said the workers installing the catch basins on the south side of the street found out there was a water line from Highland Avenue east to Friendly’s Restaurant directly under the catch basins.

About 3 a.m. Tuesday, workers rerouted the water line, and work on the catch basins resumed. Work will begin on the curbs and sidewalk on the south side next week.
