Construction begins on Columbus Road in Athens, Ohio, on September 16, 2013

York Paving is expected to continue to work on paving a section of Columbus Road Monday and Tuesday with permanent pavement marking set to be installed beginning Wednesday. Traffic will be maintained on Columbus Road, but flaggers will be present.

Originally the project was scheduled to start Sept. 16 and last a week.

York Paving will also be working on North Lancaster Street water service installation this week and plans to begin sewer line camera use. During this work, North Lancaster may be reduced to one lane adjacent to the work zone and two-way traffic will be maintained by flagging.

The city of Athens apologizes for any inconvenience that may be incurred during this work. Questions or concerns may be directed to the City of Athens Engineering and Public Works Department at 593-7636.
