[ARCHIVED] Richland Avenue South Improvements Project - Work Zone Safety

Richland Avenue South Improvements Project - Work Zone Safety

The Richland Avenue project is being constructed in a corridor with over 15,000 vehicles per day as well as high cyclist and pedestrian traffic volumes.
When traveling through the work zone, please keep the following suggestions in mind for work zone safety:

• Drive at a reduced speed. The speed limit through the construction zone is 15 miles per hour. Slowing down through the work zone increases everyone's safety.
• Pay attention to workers and equipment in the work zone.
• Pay attention to vehicles making left turns and to pedestrians and cyclists along the roadway.
• Be patient - plan ahead for delays by leaving for your destination early.

Questions or concerns may be directed to the City of Athens Engineering and Public Works Department, 740-593-7636.
