Motorists can expect detours at the city of Conyers Hardin/O’Kelly Street Livable Centers Initiative (LCI) streetscape project continues. 

The intersection of Oakland Avenue and O’Kelly Street will be closed beginning Monday, May 7, to construct a roundabout. The road closure and detours are tentatively scheduled for 90 days, weather permitting, through July 9.

The Hardin/O’Kelly LCI project, endorsed by the Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC), is designed to make the area more walkable and livable.  The project length is 0.77 miles, beginning at the intersection of Hardin Street and Dogwood Drive and ending at the intersection of O’Kelly Street and Green Street. The roads will be widened and there will be lanes for bicycles and sidewalks, along with the roundabout.

Construction began in early January. The estimated completion date for the entire project is summer 2019. 

“The construction of the roundabout at Oakland Avenue and O’Kelly Street is integral to the overall design and functionality of the road project,” said Brian Frix, deputy director of the city’s Public Works and Transportation department. “When it’s finished, citizens will more fully realize the magnitude of the enhancements and how it will simultaneously better accommodate motorists, cyclists and pedestrians in the area.”

 The Hardin/O’Kelly LCI project is funded through federal transportation dollars and local SPLOST funding. The cost of the project is $3.9 million.
