Let's Connect Athens!

Atlanta Highway and Lexington Road are major west and east gateways into Athens. They provide connections between jobs and workers, businesses and customers and residents and entertainment. The Connect Athens corridor studies or plans are an in-depth analysis of these two important thoroughfares. They will blend technical research with the intuition of stakeholders and the community and produce a set of logical strategies to improve the efficiency, aesthetics, and productivity of each corridor.
