A section of a heavily traveled road in Mount Vernon is going to be closed for about two weeks. Starting at around 7:30 Monday morning, work on the bridge south of Veteran’s Memorial Drive on Wells Bypass will begin.
The Jefferson County Highway Department says the bridge work could take two weeks to complete.
They also say that detours will be posted around Veteran’s Memorial Drive and Illinois Route 148. When traveling in that area, drive carefully and watch for workers.
