Project 16: Prince Avenue Corridor Improvements

Prince Avenue 3-Lane Pilot Project Installation in September for 60-Day Study 

The Athens-Clarke County Unified Government (ACCGov) will install a pilot project beginning in mid-September to change the locally-controlled area of Prince Avenue from a four-lane vehicle road with two vehicle lanes in each direction to a three-lane vehicle road with one vehicle lane in each direction, a center turning lane, two separated bike lanes, and other safety features. The pilot project will run for approximately a half mile from just east of North Milledge Avenue to Pulaski Street. 

An interactive map provides maps of the corridor; details and photos of the new features; before-and-after comparisons of sections of the roadway; project history; and other corridor information. Once the pilot is fully installed, a 60-day study period will begin and the story map will be updated with interactive elements to allow community feedback on the pilot project.
