Part of Richland Avenue to be closed Monday, May 12

The city of Athens is reporting that Columbia Gas will be closing Richland Avenue between West Green Drive and President Street at 8 a.m. on Monday, May 12. The road closure is expected to last one day but could possibly be extended an additional day.

The purpose of the road closure is to tap the existing gas line for the West Mulberry Street gas line replacement project. Drivers traveling from the south are encouraged to use Shafer Street to access the uptown area, and drivers traveling from the north can use West Union Street to Shafer Street to access Richland Avenue.

For additional information, please contact Ron Lucas, deputy service-safety director for the city of Athens, at (740) 592-3340 or by e-mailing rlucas@ci.athens.oh.us.
