Groundbreaking held for Mount Vernon Trail Project

Mayor Bill Curtis and the members of the Mount Vernon City Council broke ground last Tuesday at Second and Main Streets on the Mount Vernon Trail Project.

The project will help beautify the downtown area, by providing walking paths and bike paths along Main St.

The project will end at Sixth and Main Street, where a pocket park will be installed at the location of the old Police and Fire Station.

At the Thursday evening City Council meeting, Lochmueller Project Manager Scott Schoenbachler spoke about the phases of the project.
