Today we spent time talking about some of the ins and outs of the exciting projects happening on the Mount Vernon High School, Middle School and Mount Vernon Nazarene University campus.  The “Access to Opportunity” project includes four main pieces:

  • the Mount Vernon Avenue bridge replacement, which includes improvements to Cougar Drive
  • the Mount Vernon High School field house
  • the Mount Vernon Schools transportation and maintenance building and extension of Yellow Jacket Drive
  • the Mount Vernon Nazarene University soccer and lacrosse stadium

Here are some renderings of the field house and stadium:

Groundbreaking for the soccer and lacrosse stadium was Monday, while the earth is already moving for the field house and transportation building. Mount Vernon City Engineer Brian Ball shared with us that the bridge project will get moving once the bid process and contracts have been approved.

We’ll keep you posted as the progress continues!

Thanks for listening!
