Due to unforeseen conditions, the Pope Avenue intersection at 15th Street will remain closed this week for the work to be completed.
This article in Jagwire had previously announced that the closure would run from Dec. 3-6. However, workers on this city of Augusta project encountered some difficulties while making roadway and drainage improvements.
Parking areas and buildings along Pope Avenue should be accessible via Chafee Avenue. Please plan accordingly, as this may affect entering and exiting the Health Sciences Campus parking lots in the Pope Avenue area. In addition, the JagExpress shuttles, particularly the Silver 1 bus, may experience slight delays due to rerouting.
Pedestrian access and the 15th Street crosswalk will remain open along Pope Avenue for the duration. The work is expected to last through Friday, Dec. 6, weather permitting.
