Residents review I-16 flyover plans

By Jamie Ertle-Durden - email

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Several dozen members of the community came out to an open house to discuss the I-16 flyover on Tuesday.

The Metropolitan Planning Commission has come up with three different designs on what they think will work best. Now, it's up to the community to accept or reject those ideas.

The city says they've had lots of feedback on the controversal roadway and this is a long process that has drawn interest from start and hopefully a finish.

Ellen Harris with the MPC says, "The flyover itself has been a source of interest almost since it was built in the 1960s. It really tore apart two different communities, Currytown and Frogtown, and has served as a physical and economic barrier to this part of MLK and Montgomery Street."

If you missed the open house on Tuesday, the Con Ed Resource Center is open during the week for this project. Call the Con Ed Resource Center 912.231.0092 for more information.
