Traffic Pattern Changes

Roundabout Safety

Travelers on US-33 who take the northnmost exit from the Nelsonville Bypass encounter a single-lane roundabout at W. Interchange Rd. and the old US-33. Travelers entering Athens via OH 682 from US-33, OH-32, and US-50 access Richland Avenue via a multi-lane roundabout.

For traffic approaching the roundabout on OH-682 from US-33, OH-32, and US-50, there are two lanes:

Temporary Changes

US-33 Construction in Nelsonville

The US-33 bypass around Nelsonville is now complete and in service.

Richland Avenue and Oxbow Trail Construction in Athens

Richland Avenue is now open from West Green Drive intersection to West Mulberry Street. Oxbow Trail and the pedestrian walkway on the other side of the old riverbed, below the bridge, are also open again.

South Green Drive Construction and Construction Traffic

Two major construction projects are in progress along South Green Drive: erection of the Multipurpose Pavilion between Peden Stadium and the Ping Center and Phase I of the Housing Development Plan on the former Wolfe Street Apartments site. Construction vehicles will use South Green Drive and may slow or temporarily block traffic.

In addition, the University will be preparing utilities and infrastructure to support new construction as part of the Housing Development Plan. South Green Drive and University Terrace may be reduced to one lane or closed temporarily during this process. Be alert for signage and flaggers, and check #OhioUBuilds on Twitter for last-minute lane closures and changes.

Lancaster Street and Columbus Road Construction in Athens

This project includes road and sidewalk repairs on Lancaster Street between Carpenter and Second streets. Columbus Road will be reconstructed to add wider shoulders, bicycle lanes, and possibly a median strip. Traffic will be reduced to one lane during this project.
