Major traffic shift on President Street begins Thursday

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Drivers should be aware of a major planned traffic shift set to begin on President Street Thursday.

The shift will occur between East Broad and Truman Parkway.

Traffic will move onto the new elevated roadway of President Street, allowing construction to continue while leaving four lanes of traffic open.

This change will allow contractors to make final utility line connections, demolish and elevate existing President Street roadway, and install additional roadway and intersection improvements.

Other improvements will occur throughout the year. The project is expected to be finished by the end of 2017.
