Grease Festival will impact weekend traffic | Events
Preparations for this year’s Grease Festival will impact traffic around Athens this weekend.
Organizers and the Athens Police Department will close Washington Street between Jefferson and Clinton Streets, and Marion Street between Market and Green Streets on Friday around 5:30 p.m. to accommodate the stage and early vendor arrivals.
Market St. between Jefferson and Marion will be closed early Saturday morning.
Jefferson St. will remain open, but parking spaces closest to the Limestone County Courthouse will be reserved for handicapped use only. Motorists should use caution on Jefferson throughout the day.
Access to Limestone Drug’s drive-thru service off Marion St. will remain available.
