MOUNT VERNON — Paving projects were at the top of the agenda Friday when Mount Vernon Mayor Richard Mavis gave his weekly city report to the Mount Vernon News.
City engineer Cameron Keaton gave an update on the current construction projects. Progress on the Coshocton Avenue project is continuing at a fairly rapid pace. Milling and paving on the south side of Coshocton is expected to be completed Tuesday or Wednesday, when traffic will then be shifted from the north side to the south side. Cleanup work will then be performed on the newly-paved stretch of road.
The final layer of asphalt on the section of Coshocton Avenue between Sychar Road and Vernedale Drive will begin Oct. 15, and will take about one week or slightly longer to complete.
Residents are already taking advantage of the new sidewalk which runs along Coshocton Avenue. A few sections are still to be completed before the project is entirely done. “It will be a much safer area for people to walk,” said Mavis about the new sidewalk.
