ONGOING ROAD CLOSURE: Olympic Drive from Indian Hills Road to Athena Drive

Olympic Drive from Indian Hills Road to Athena Drive will be closed until further notice due to a failed stormwater culvert.

Olympic Drive from Indian Hills Road to Athena Drive will be closed until further notice. Local traffic is allowed from Indian Hills Road to Hancock Industrial Way.

On Wednesday, January 4, 2023 a section of road collapsed due to a failing stormwater culvert underneath the pavement. The culvert was washed out during the heavy rains that occurred on the evening of January 3.

The Athens-Clarke County Transportation and Public Works Department is currently operating under emergency procedures to get the culvert and road surface repaired and replaced. There is currently no timeline for the completion of the repairs, but they are expected to take at least several months. Updates will be added as they are known.

A detour using Athena Drive, Spring Valley Road, and Indian Hills Road is currently in place.

For more information, call the Athens-Clarke County Transportation and Public Works Department at 706-613-3440.
