Athens Public Works Department issues reminder about cross walks. Please view email for full message.

The City of Athens Public Works Department would like to issue a reminder to the public about the crosswalks in the Athens area. All motorists and pedestrians are responsible for crossing safely in the crosswalk zones and should be on high alert through these areas. The lights at the Tennessee Wesleyan College crosswalk on Green Street are only an extra tool to help get motorists attention. The lights are merely mechanical devices, just like all mechanical devices, the lights have the potential to fail especially during a storm, power outage, or a mechanical failure of the devices. Please use extreme caution when you approach all crosswalks and the TWC crosswalk. Slow down and look for students who may be about to cross the street from both sides. You should always look for students on the side of the crosswalk and not just rely on the lights in the road to turn on.
For more information or if you have questions, contact the City of Athens Department of Public Works at (423)744-2755 or (423) 744-2745.
