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.
