Project Updates

Signal upgrades in the intersection with S. Milledge, which includes ADA ramps and pedestrian facilities, is on hold due to utility coordination with GDOT & Georgia Power. 
    • On Southview Drive, the contractor began clearing and tree removal in July. Work is near complete on the 330 block between Pinecrest and O’Farrell Street, and work has begun on the 200 block.
