The Athens-Clarke County Transportation and Public Works Department is seeking public input on bike and pedestrian improvement options on Barber Street through May 19, 2021. The purpose of this project is to install amenities along Barber Street between Prince Avenue and North Chase Street/Dairy Pak Road.
The proposed amenities will create safer access for bicyclists, pedestrians, and motorists to adjacent neighborhoods, businesses, and public transit facilities along Barber Street and this quickly growing area of Athens.
This project is broken up into four different segments:
- From North Chase Street to the Loop 10 underpass
- From Loop 10 underpass to Oneta Street
- From Oneta Street to Boulevard
- From Boulevard to Prince Avenue
The public comment survey includes a story map that highlights the project alternatives and cost comparisons of different plans. Other background information available online includes a video and PDF presentation that explains the Barber Street project and options. The survey and background information are available at accgov.com/barber.
The Barber Street project is a Tier 1 Project identified in the Athens in Motion Bicycle/Pedestrian Master Plan, which is available at www.accgov.com/athensinmotion. A timeframe for construction of this project has not yet been determined.
