Traffic Changes Begin Ahead of Savannah Cultural Arts Center Opening

SAVANNAH, GA (February 26, 2019) —Traffic on Montgomery Street will begin running two ways the morning of February 28 as the City prepares the corridor for the opening of the Savannah Cultural Arts Center.

Montgomery Street has operated as a northbound one-way road since 1967 when the I-16 overpass was opened. The City has converted the street to allow both north- and southbound traffic in order to support greater access to the Civic Center and Savannah Cultural Arts Center from all areas of downtown. New traffic signals, curb cuts, striping, signage and other streetscape changes have been installed to support the conversion. Digital message boards alerting the public to the coming change have been placed along Montgomery Street.

Slated to open this spring, the Savannah Cultural Arts Center will provide opportunities for residents of Savannah to engage in all forms of art – from painting to ceramics to metalworking, dance, theater and music. It is funded through voter-approved Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (SPLOST).

“Converting Montgomery Street into a two-way street allows visitors to turn right on Oglethorpe Avenue and safely drop off people at the entrance to the Savannah Cultural Arts Center,” said City Traffic Engineer Steve Henry. “The conversion creates greater connectivity and access to the Civic Center and Savannah Cultural Arts Center.”
