Greek Town, which is defined as the area bordered by Rollins Street, Tiger Avenue, Kentucky Boulevard and Providence Road, will experience various sidewalk closures and lane restrictions during the construction process. These closures will occur on Curtis Avenue, Tiger Avenue, Richmond Avenue, Burnam Avenue, Rollins Street and Kentucky Boulevard.

To minimize disruption to traffic flow in the area, the project will be completed in segments. Signs will also be placed to guide drivers through work zones and ensure pedestrian safety during any sidewalk closures.

The City of Columbia Public Works staff held an Interested Parties meeting on August 10th of this year to discuss concept plans for the project. The designs were approved by City Council on July 17th of next year.

This project is a joint effort between the University of Missouri, the City of Columbia and the Panhellenic Association. The total cost of construction is estimated to be $180,000 and will be shared equally between the University and the City. The City's funding contributions come from the Capital Improvement Sales Tax.

The construction is expected to be completed by Friday, August 2nd. This improvement project will not only benefit pedestrians but also enhance traffic flow in Greek Town.
