Linton Road closures begin Monday in Athens

— On Monday, construction will begin to make improvements to Linton Road, Athens Street Department Manager Dolph Bradford said.

"We will be replacing all drainage tiles and widening the road four feet for future paving," Bradford said.

Construction may take up to a month with closures to through traffic at different times during the project. (Linton Road runs between Nick Davis Road and Alabama 251.)

"We'll try to keep these closings as brief as possible," he said. "We ask for safety and cooperation from motorists until completion."
