The City of Aiken has executed contracts with Satterfield Construction Company to begin construction on proposed improvements at the intersection of Whiskey Road and Dougherty Road. The improvements along Dougherty Road will include an additional right turn lane onto Whiskey Road, a new concrete median, new sidewalks, curb and gutter, traffic signal modifications, and a closed pipe storm sewer network. Improvements along Whiskey Road include upgrades to the existing storm sewer system in place. Construction is anticipated to begin in late August of 2019, following the completion of utility relocations currently underway by AT&T, and will require 220 days to complete. Should inclement weather delay construction activities, the project may take longer to complete.

The City of Aiken will continue to update citizens in regard to construction activities, closings, and signal modifications.
