Merchant's Alley Project

Athens Main Street has hit what is calling a “major milestone” in completing its Merchant's Alley project. Concrete was recently poured throughout the alley. Main Street said with that step completed, other features of the project can now be installed, including lights, art passages, the hanging of the Brittany Howard tribute board and more. “The major reason we are able to create this public space is thanks to community donations, both monetary and in-kind,” said Athens Main Street Executive Director Tere Richardson. “The efforts of our construction partners, such as Wade Hall Concrete/Gardener Concrete Contracting, who go above and beyond are invaluable to our project.” The projected date for completion of Merchant's Alley is Nov. 5
