Work Underway on Next Phase of Clayton Street Improvements Project
Crews with the Athens-Clarke County Transportation and Public Works department have begun work on the next phase of the Clayton Street Improvements Project.
Crews are continuing stormwater infrastructure work in a three-block area. Major work will take place Monday through Thursday from 6:30 am until 4 pm.
There will be some patching done on Friday mornings. The same crews completed the Phase 1 Pre-Dig in fall 2018 and the stormwater installation in summer 2019.
The original timeline for the East Clayton Street Improvements project was delayed after crews discovered about 60 utility conflicts - including pipes, vaults, and conduit - with both public and private utilities during the Phase 1 Pre-Dig in fall 2018.
The work began Monday, January 6, 2020 and is expected to take 8 to 12 weeks to finish.
Once the stormwater installation phase is completed in March, work will begin on the actual streetscape, above-ground part of the project.
