Work begins on Waters Avenue streetscape

Posted By on Wed, Jan 6, 2016 at 11:24 AM

Work begins today on major streetscape improvements to Waters Avenue, which will include brick paver sidewalks, stamped concrete crosswalks, ADA compliance ramps, landscaping, and lighting.

"The multi-million dollar streetscape plan for Waters Avenue extends from Victory Drive to Wheaton Street, with the goal of beautifying and enhancing the area while also increasing public safety and accessibility," says Saja Aures of the City of Savannah Public Information Office.

The streetscape plan is part of an overall revitalization effort within this major corridor to support neighborhood vitality and spur economic development.

The intersection of Waters Ave. and 37th St. will be closed until Wednesday, January 20, for the installation of new crosswalks. Residents can expect intermittent closures along Waters Avenue through the end of May as the project progresses.
