Richland project to cost more than $6 million
(WOUB) - If you want the Richland Avenue-State Route 682 intersection fixed, it's time to get out your checkbook.

That message was delivered last night by Street Director Andy Stone to members of Athens City Council.

Stone says the improvements planned for the intersection will cost more than $6 million.

He's counting on grants to the city paying for all but $1.7 million of that, and he wants $425,000 right away.

Stone says it'll take this year and next to do the design engineering for the project, and construction would come after that.

Tentative plans are for the Richland intersection to be turned into a round-about.
