Weather Delays Sidewalk Project


Colder temperatures have pushed back work on North Sandusky Street

MOUNT VERNON, Nov. 12, 2021 – The City of Mount Vernon’s project to replace the sidewalks on a portion of the east side of North Sandusky Street has been postponed until further notice.
The City’s contractor on the project, Smith Paving & Excavating, Inc., of Norwalk, Ohio, has determined that seasonally colder temperatures, many of which will be below freezing in the evening and overnight hours, would put the concrete at risk of damage due to freezing. At this time, the sidewalk work will not be taking place until the spring. In the meantime, tree removal crews have taken down the trees that needed to be removed for the sidewalk project to proceed.
Residents are advised to call the City of Mount Vernon’s Engineering Department at 740-393-9528 with any questions.
