Stormwater Infrastructure Work Continues in January 2020
Athens-Clarke County Transportation and Public Works crews will continue stormwater infrastructure work starting on January 6, 2020. Work will take place on three blocks and is expected to last around 8-12 weeks.
These are the same crews who finished the Phase 1 Pre-Dig in fall 2018 and the stormwater installation in summer 2019, so they are familiar with the area and the challenges.
The original timeline for the East Clayton Street Improvements project was delayed a result of needing to resolve approximately 60 utility conflicts - including pipes, vaults, and conduit - with both public and private utilities that were discovered during the successful Phase 1 Pre-Dig in fall 2018.
That work to address conflicts is still being coordinated with the design team and private utilities. Design changes (shifting where things will be placed and run underground) eliminated some of these conflicts, but not all of them. Private utilities - gas, power, cable, telecommunications, etc. - are continuing to work on their plans to move or make changes to their structures in conjunction with the stormwater installation
Some of this private utility work may occur in areas along Clayton Street separate from the work noted below, but the goal is to coordinate work with Athens-Clarke County Unified Government (ACCGov) staff and other utilities as much as possible.
Key notes about the upcoming stormwater infrastructure work:
- Work begins January 6
- ~8-12 weeks to finish
- Work takes place in segments along the three blocks (see maps linked below for locations and schedules)
- Major work takes place Monday – Thursday, 6:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. (with some Friday morning patching)
- Lane and parking restrictions on Clayton Street and some on College Avenue
- Lane and parking restrictions will run Monday - Thursday and some Friday mornings. Areas will reopen for Friday - Sunday.
- Two ACC Transportation & Public Works crews will work together on each area
As noted above, some private utility work may occur in areas other than this to address their conflicts as they can schedule it, although much of this work would be of minimal disruption.
