Project Information

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.
