State Route 13 Safety Construction Project

MOUNT VERNON — Vehicles traveling south into Mount Vernon will face a detour until November 2021, as a safety construction project is underway on State Route 13/Sandusky Street.
Southbound traffic began being redirected Wednesday around 3 p.m. Vehicles on SR 13 now must travel west on SR 95, then south on SR 314 and back east on SR 229 into Mount Vernon, city engineer Brian Ball said.
SR 13/Sandusky Street was converted into one lane, so one-way northbound traffic will not be disrupted, Ball said.
Belmont Avenue will also be closed at SR 13/Sandusky Street as well, with a detour for the Belmont Avenue closure from Cassil Street to Sunset Street, according to the Ohio Department of Transportation.
