WATCH: Barber Street Culvert Replacement Project Timelapse

Barber Street Culvert Replacement

In fall 2018, a culvert under Barber Street unexpectedly failed, requiring a road closure to through traffic for a number of months while major utilities were relocated, the old metal culvert carrying a live stream was replaced with a concrete one, and the road rebuilt. It reopened in April 2019. 

Check out this timelapse of the whole project to see what was involved in the process from a private contractor working with Athens-Clarke County Stormwater and the Athens-Clarke County Transportation & Public Works Department.
