Crews are expected to start working on the Pryor Street roundabout project in Athens on Wednesday, Sept. 1. 

The project is expected to take up to six months depending on weather. 

Drivers can expect to start seeing message board warnings this week about a pending road closure. Detour signs will be installed starting Sept. 7.  Hobbs Street will serve as a detour. 

However, crews don't expect to shut down Pryor Street until Sept. 15. It will be closed in front of the Athens Seventh-Day Adventist Church to build the roundabout. 

Golden Eagle Drive and Boardwalk will be open, so people will still have access to the church and their driveways.
