[ARCHIVED] North Court Infrastructure Improvements Project Update

North Court Street Infrastructure Improvements Project

This project consists of replacing the existing storm tunnel under North Court Street (located near Fern Alley), reconstructing the brick pavement on North Court Street from Carpenter Street to Fern Alley, and repairing sections of the existing storm sewer. The project also includes select sidewalk repairs on East State Street, Grosvenor Street, Franklin Street and Morris Avenue.

During the remainder of this week York Paving Company will complete the installation of the junction box and catchbasin, backfill the excavated area, and prepare the roadway for paving and brick rehabilitation. Next week the City crews expect to return to complete the installation of the brick street surface while York Paving completes sidewalk repairs on North Court Street in the project area.

During this construction period, North Court Street will be closed to vehicle traffic from Rose Alley to Carpenter Street - a marked detour will be maintained for the duration of the project. There will also be times during the project that will require the temporary closure of either the east or west sidewalk adjacent to North Court Street to protect pedestrians from construction activities. During these times a sidewalk detour will be marked and maintained. This section of North Court Street is expected to re-open for the weekend, with the closure re-occurring Monday morning.

Businesses between West State Street and Carpenter Street will remain open during the project, according to their individual schedules.

The City of Athens apologizes for any inconvenience that may be incurred during this work. Questions or concerns may be directed to the City of Athens Engineering and Public Works Department, 740-593-7636.
