Clayton Street Improvement Project Update - Oct. 18, 2018

Phase 1 - Pre-Dig - Complete

Crews with the Athens-Clarke County Transportation & Public Works Department completed the Clayton Street Improvement Project Phase 1 - the Pre-Dig - on Wednesday, October 3 after finishing up work on Wall Street.

Thanks to these crews, the work was completed approximately one month ahead of schedule.

Although some private utility relocation work and other non-Clayton Street Improvement construction work will take place between now and 2019, no stormwater or streetscape work will take place related to the Clayton Street Improvements until January 2019 along this corridor.

Pre-Dig for Stormwater System Recap

The Pre-Dig phase for the Clayton Street Improvements started Monday, June 18 when crews started digging trenches for the future stormwater system. Actual installation of the stormwater system will begin in January 2019.

The goal was to discover any issues such as conflicts with other underground items earlier in the process so that the actual installation of the system goes quicker.

Additional information and upcoming dates that relate to the Clayton Street Area project will continue to be sent through this listserve. More information, including detailed maps, are linked at
