Road in front of Mt. Vernon Junior High to be widened

POSEY CO., Ind. (WFIE) - Driving near Mt. Vernon Junior High School will soon be a little easier.

Tuesday, the Posey County Council approved widening Tile Factory Road to Mockingbird Lane, which runs in front of the school.

We’re also told a new bridge will be built along the roadway, with an estimated start date of 2025.

The project is being funded by a federal grant and will cost a little over $6 million.
