Phase 2 of Waters Avenue Streetscape Enhancement Project underway

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - The city of Savannah will start the second phase of the Waters Avenue Streetscape Project on Monday, Feb. 25.

This phase of the project will incorporate new sidewalks, ADA compliant crossing locations, new greenscape enhancements, an ornamental neighborhood sign post and decorative street lighting.

Waters Avenue from Anderson to Henry streets will be closed to traffic during this ongoing construction. In the coming weeks, the city says Henry Street will merge to one lane when approaching the Waters Avenue project.

After this portion of construction is completed, work will continue further north between Henry Street and Park Avenue. Henry Street will remain one lane until this section of construction is completed.

The first phase included new sidewalks, ADA compliant crossing locations, new greenscape enhancements and roadside plants from 37th Street to Anderson Street.
