Sections of S. 12th Street in Mt. Vernon to Close Next Week

MT. VERNON —  S. 12th Street in Mt. Vernon from Perkins to Veteran’s Memorial Drive will be closed from Monday at 8:15 a.m. to Tuesday at 4 p.m.

Mt. Vernon City Manager Mary Ellen Bechtel says the closure is necessary due to ongoing water line work in the area.

The work will shift on S. 12th from Perkins to Casey on Wednesday and Thursday.

Perkins will remain open for east/west traffic through the entirety of the project.

Residents living in the closure areas will be able to access their driveways from the cross streets.
