Hart Street Project to See Week’s Delay

The start of the Hart Street project will be delayed a week.  It is now set to begin on Monday of next week, if all goes to plan.  Vincennes City Engineer John Sprague updated the project during yesterday’s Vincennes Board of Works session.
Vincennes Mayor Joe Yochum says the company requested the one week delay.  Mayor Yochum reminds everyone the Hart Street project between Veterans’ Memorial Drive and 15th Street will have a complete overnight closure.
Hart Street will also shrink from four driving lanes to two driving lanes and a third left turn lane.  That three lane setup will run from 15th to Veterans’ Drive.  Past that, from Veterans’ Drive to Lincoln High School, the road will be a five-lane setup, with four lanes of traffic and a left turn lane.
