Project 11: General Intersection Improvements

Project Summary

The project is intended to address improvements to intersections identified in the Regional Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) and the Long-Range Transportation Plan for Athens-Clarke County. The work includes conceptual design and planning, engineering, right-of-way acquisition and construction.
