[ARCHIVED] General McIntosh to close Monday

For Immediate Release
Date: February 24, 2015

Due to inclement weather, General McIntosh is now scheduled to be closed to traffic beginning Monday, March 2 and continuing for most of the remainder of the President Street project. Cold weather and rain prohibits the paving of East Broad, which must be completed for the project to move on to General McIntosh.

During this closure, traffic will continue on President Street to East Broad Street. Four lanes of traffic (two lanes in each direction) on President Street will remain open at all times. Access to the Savannah Riverfront Marriot will remain open from Bay Street throughout the project. Access to the eastbound ramp onto the Truman Parkway will also remain open at this time.

Work on President Street/General McIntosh includes raising the elevation of the roadway between 5 and 8 feet to alleviate street flooding. The project will also replace aging utility lines, improve the streetscape, and add new and reconfigured intersections. Major improvements to the Bilbo Canal, which passes beneath President Street, will improve drainage throughout downtown.
