The City of Athens awarded the Stimson Avenue Improvements Project construction contract to Trucco Construction Company, Incorporated.
The Stimson Avenue Improvements Project will reconstruct Stimson Avenue between State Street and Grant Street. The improvements include City-owned utility replacements (water, sanitary sewer, storm sewer), installation of decorative lighting, upgrading existing traffic signals, replacing curb and sidewalks, installing higher visibility cross walks, and replacing the existing roadway with a new concrete roadway.
The construction of the full Stimson Avenue Project is expected to begin in February, 2021. However, Trucco Construction plans to install a section of sidewalk between Grant Street and the Stimson/N. 1804 Roundabout on Monday, September 14, 2020. The work is expected to take one week to complete, and traffic will be maintained.
Questions or concerns may be directed to the City of Athens Engineering and Public Works Department, 740-593-7636.
