Safety of busy intersections within acceptable levels

The results from a speed study by the Texas Department of Transportation requested last summer were shared last week by the City of Mount Vernon with the state agency offering no changes in speed or traffic control at Dukes, Love’s and Tiger Boulevard.

The TxDOT representative suggested that additional law enforcement for better compliance was needed at Hwy. 37 and Tiger Blvd. For more about the rest of the report, see the February 21 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald.
