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, all entrances will receive rock as a transition onto the new asphalt road. For those thinking about paying to pave your entrance, it is now too late to pave your entrance through the project. You can choose to hire your own contractor or you can sign up through the county to have it paved next year.

Please contact me with any questions.

The contractor is now paving the surface course on Mount Vernon Road. Today, they paved on the south side of the road from East Post Road to Rosedale Road. Tomorrow, they will continue on the south side of the road from Rosedale Road to Highway 13. Friday, they will pave the north side of the road from Highway 13 west towards Rosedale Road. This schedule is tentative and dependent on their daily progress.

Access will be temporarily closed for property owners as the asphalt paving passes by your entrance. This is not much different than when paving passed by entrances the first few times. However, since this is the surface course they want to keep traffic off the asphalt until it cools to avoid any imperfections in the surface. Access is expected to be closed for 15-30 minutes.

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