Prince Avenue Pilot Project Installation in September for 60-Day Study
The Athens-Clarke County Unified Government (ACCGov) will install a pilot project beginning in mid-September to change the locally-controlled area of Prince Avenue from a four-lane vehicle road with two vehicle lanes in each direction to a three-lane vehicle road with one vehicle lane in each direction, a center turning lane, two separated bike lanes, and other safety features. The pilot project will run for approximately a half mile from just east of North Milledge Avenue to Pulaski Street.
An interactive map and feedback form is now available that provides maps of the corridor; details and photos of the new features; before-and-after comparisons of sections of the roadway; project history; and other corridor information. Community feedback on the pilot project will be accepted through November 23.Read more about the pilot project.
