Athens St. closure rescheduled due to rain

By Derreck Booth Anchor/reporter
Crews have postponed the closure of a section of Athens St. in Gainesville until Thursday because of rain.
 
Fieldale Farms had initially requested the closure for Wednesday.
 
The poultry company's application for a temporary street closure lists "crane work" as the reason, specifically "(to) set equipment off roof."
 
The section of street that will be closed is between Harrison Square and Monroe Drive. It is to be closed at 8:00 a.m. and reopened by 4:00 p.m., according to the document.
 
City officials say Old Athens Road should be used as an alternate while Athens Street is closed.
