Heavy Traffic to Remain


Traffic will remain heavy over the next few months in Athens. The repaving of streets will consist of almost four miles of roads intersecting with Broad, from Minor Street to Gaines School Road. It will cause backups from 7 PM to 6 AM. Senior Vice President of operations, Bill White, stated, “The project is for general maintenance, and there will be no detours during construction, but there will be an officer present each day.”

Pedestrians are concerned about safety and transportation measures.

One UGA student stated,
“Walking is dangerous, and it’s at nighttime so I can’t leave my house.”

The $2.4 million project is expected to be completed by September first, even though the formal completion date is set for March of 2014.
