Street study for Athens
(WOUB) - Richland Avenue in Athens is a busy place -- many, many cars and trucks and lots of Ohio University students.

This leads to accidents and congestion.

It's hoped an ordinance introduced to Athens City Council last night will lead to improvements.

The measure authorizes the hiring of an engineering firm to identify problems and possible solutions.

Athens City Councilmember Jim Sands says the study will cost around $100,000 dollars.
