Construction on Richland Avenue
(2007-10-09)
(WOUB) - If you drive much on Richland Avenue in Athens, you might want to mark October 17th on your calendar.

The same goes for people who walk and ride their bicycles along the busy thorofare.

The city is starting to plan some improvements and Safety Service Director Ray Hazlett says the meeting is important.

Mayor Ric Abel says Athens will probably spend around one-and-a-half million dollars on the Richland project.

But Hazlett told Councilmember Nancy Bain last night that he doesn't expect any of that to be needed to acquire right of way.

Construction is projected for 2010.
