Richland avenue improvement plans are in the works
(2008-05-06)
(WOUB) - The intersection of Richland Avenue and State Route 6-82 is one of the busiest in the City of Athens...so it's no surprise that members of City Council are very interested what happens there.

Last night, they spent a good bit of time talking about plans to make improvements...either by upgrading the existing intersection or going to something entirely different -- a round-about.

Councilmember Nancy Bain complained the city administration is not answering her questions.

In the end, Bain and all other councilmembers adopted an ordinance to apply for grant funds that would be used to study safety issues for pedestrians and bicyclists who use the intersection.

The intersection project is slated for construction in 20-10.

A pedestrian tunnel is one possibility if the round-about design is chosen.
