Logo for Engineering and Public Works Department for the City of Athens, OH

The Contractor will continue work this week and next week between S. Court Street and 12 West Union Street.

The activities planned for this week include curb removal, concrete sidewalk removal, and some pavement removal. The Contractor will also be forming the curb ramp at the corner of West Union/S. Court Street. The electrical subcontractor is expected to begin conduit installation.

Next week, the Contractor plans on forming and pouring the new curb, forming the tree planting areas, and may begin brick sidewalk replacement.

During removals and formwork, the Contractor may be using a jackhammer, an excavator, or saws.

During construction, access to businesses and residences will be maintained, however, there may be times when sidewalk sections are closed and a pedestrian detour will be in place.

Construction progress is weather dependent. The Contractor’s regular working schedule is Monday - Thursday.
