• Mt. Vernon facing road closures

    by  • May 22, 2013 • News

    Motorists in Mount Vernon should be alert for road closures over the next few days. Starting this morning, crews for the Norfolk Southern Railroad will begin repairs on Illinois Route 15 on the east side of Fifth Street in both the eastbound and westbound lanes and the work will result in road closures.

    Motorists should follow marked detour routes and try to avoid the area if possible.  No traffic will be permitted through the construction zone while workers are present, however, the lanes will be open during overnight hours.
