Work to Begin on Mount Vernon Avenue in Augusta

Augusta – Crews will be back reconstructing Mount Vernon Avenue in Augusta on Monday, April 4th.

Mount Vernon Avenue is being completely reconstructed as part of a $2.9 million project. The work requires one-way alternating traffic with flaggers that will assist motorists through the work zones.

Work will begin at the Bond Street end of the project to complete water, sewage and drainage improvements as well as building retaining walls. However, work will take place along the length of Mount Vernon Avenue northerly to University Drive. All work will take place during daylight hours.

Motorists are encouraged to drive carefully through the work zones or find an alternate route.

In addition to road reconstruction, the project includes water and sewer improvements as well as new drainage and sidewalks along with new retaining walls.

While weather dependent, it is anticipated all work will be completed by the end of June, 2016.
