The Lexington Highway Corridor Improvement Project is seeking to provide infrastructure improvements to help improve traffic flow, pedestrian access, and bicycle facilities between Johnson Road (east of the Athens Loop) and Southeast Clarke Park. (Note: There is also a similar project for Atlanta Highway).

Immediate Impact Project
Traffic engineering completed installation of 19 airport way finding signs to better direct customers of Athens Ben Epps Airport providing drivers the most direct routes to the airport entrance.
The Airport and Traffic Engineering collaborated to develop appropriate locations to best serve the Athens Ben Epps Airport and surrounding community. The wayfinding signage not only serves to help customers find the airport in the most direct route, it helps reduce confused or lost drivers on the surrounding roadway systems.
