To provide better access to the new Cultural Arts Center, currently under construction at Montgomery and Oglethorpe, City Council approved the conversion of Montgomery Street from one-way to two-way traffic from Liberty Street to Broughton Street.
The recommendation to covert the street to two-way traffic came after an extensive traffic study and evaluation of the existing roadway network, completed by Jacobs Engineering Group. Modifications or upgrades will be required to traffic lanes, traffic signals, informational signs, roadway stripping, and on-street parking in the area being converted.
The City hopes to make the changes to Montgomery Street by Spring 2018, to coincide with the opening of the Cultural Arts Center.
