Thursday, July 31st, 2014-Village Parkway Construction

In case you have not driven down Mount Vernon today, traffic is even heavier than normal, especially as you get closer to the Village Parkway construction site. You should expect these delays to continue all through today and tomorrow because the work crews are paving the road these two days. However, once the street is smooth enough, more lanes should open up and it will be slightly easier for us to drive through there. As of right now, the city is hoping for all the construction to be completed by the end of September.
