The State is installing a new traffic light at U.S. 31 and Hobbs Street. Please watch for possible lane closures.
Elm Street/Wilkinson Intersection
Grayson Carter has notified the City of Athens of a tentative start date of Jan. 18, 2022, on the improvements project at Wilkinson/Elm. This project will include an additional turn lane being constructed on Wilkinson and a new signal at the intersection of Wilkinson/Elm. This project, depending on weather, will take until late April or early May. The intersection will not be completely closed, but motorists should watch for work crews.
Pryor Street Roundabout
The eastbound and westbound lanes of Pryor Street at the roundabout will open to traffic today, May 17, 2022, at 5 p.m. Please note this is an active construction zone and that the drives to the north and south will remain closed until the Publix project opens.
Paving update for May 3
Paving expected to restart in Indian Trace Subdivision today (May 3) and finish this week.
After that project, the crew will move to the west side of town and pave Brownsferry Street south of U.S. 72 and then all of the streets in Culwell Place.
City crews are patch paving on Elkton Street today (May 3) and then will move to McArthur Drive later this week as weather allows.
