Mount Vernon Road Project Update:

The project was let on April 18, 2017 and the contract has been awarded to L.L. Pelling of North Liberty, IA for a cost of $4,423,753.78. The project is expected to last 8-12 weeks. The road will remain open at all times, but traffic will be controlled with flaggers and a pilot car so delays should be expected.

The contractor has provided a tentative start date of May 22, 2017. Linn County has a meeting with the contractor next week to discuss project details. I will have much more information to pass next week after that meeting.

Please contact me with any questions. Thanks for your cooperation.

As a reminder, Mount Vernon Road is scheduled to be closed near Lincoln Heights tomorrow and Thursday (September 6th and 7th). The closure is due to a culvert replacement. Due to the depth of the culvert and several underground utilities in the area it is not safe for traffic and the workers to complete this work under traffic. The closure will be at the intersection of Lincoln Heights and Mount Vernon Road. All properties will maintain access during this closure and all business will remain open. There will not be a posted detour for this temporary closure. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
