The US 33 WB off-ramp and US 33 WB on-ramp at East State Street in the City of Athens will be closed beginning June 11, 2018. The closures are necessary to complete concrete pavement replacement and the installation of an additional right turn lane onto East State Street and an additional receiving lane onto US 33.
The estimated completion date is July 25, 2018.
The detour for trucks and commercial traffic is via US 50E to the East State Street Exit. Local traffic will be detoured to the Stimson Avenue Exit, 16C.
Concrete replacement work will also begin on the US 33 EB on-ramp in this time period. Temporary pavement will be installed to maintain traffic.
In order to discourage neighborhood cut-through traffic, Grant Street will be modified to be one way north through at least the duration of the ramp closure period.
Questions may be directed to the City of Athens Engineering and Public Works Department, 740-593-7636.
