river closed

MOUNT VERNON -- The Kokosing River will be closed to boaters at the Mount Vernon Avenue bridge for bridge demolition work, beginning Tuesday, Sept. 3.

Boaters will need to exit the river approximately 250 feet upstream of the bridge and follow the marked "Portage Detour" across Mount Vernon Avenue to the downstream side, where boaters can safely re-enter the river.

The river is expected to re-open on Sept. 6, weather permitting, according to the Ohio Department of Transportation.
