The City of Vernon says the disruption is due to some unexpected utility work for the Lakeshore Park project.
“There were no planned street closures; however, some utility work was required, which was not discovered until late yesterday afternoon,” says communications officer Nick Nilsen. “The decision was made to close the road to make those repairs. ETA for getting things back to normal is pending. We will continue to assess the situation and will issue a road update if repairs are not completed today.”
