MOUNT VERNON — Milling and paving will begin on Coshocton Avenue Monday, Mayor Richard Mavis reported.
At his weekly News briefing, Mavis said the work was to have started Friday, but was delayed slightly. It’s still on schedule to be completed by mid-November.
Except for the lane that has already been done, the street will be milled and paved from Sychar Road to Vernonview Drive. The process will take about three weeks, weather permitting.
There has been a small glitch in installing the traffic signals at Vernedale Drive. The mayor said the pole at the northeast corner of the intersection that holds the cable for the existing signal is in front of the pole that will hold the boom for the new light.
As a result, sometime in the next three weeks, police officers will have to direct traffic for the three hours or so it will take to remove the existing pole and to erect the new light.
The city will open bids Wednesday for the planting of more than 200 trees in six parts of the city. Mavis said a grant from Ariel Foundation is paying the estimated $62,000 cost of the plantings along part of Mount Vernon Avenue, North Sandusky Street, Riverside Park, Arch Avenue, Hiawatha Park and along the cemetery at Wooster Avenue.
