Mt. Vernon - Drivers should expect a new traffic signal to be activated Monday, August 18 at Business Loop 44 (Mt. Vernon Boulevard) & Route 39 in Mt. Vernon, the Missouri Department of Transportation said.
Drivers will initially experience the new signal in a flashing mode: red for traffic on Route 39 and yellow for Business Loop 44. It will be switched to full operation the week of August 25.
WalMart requested and paid for the new signal as part of the construction of a new WalMart store at that intersection.
Weather and/or construction delays will alter the work schedule.
