Phase I of Second Street Connector complete

On Thursday, August 20, the realigned intersection of Little Richard Penniman Boulevard and Telfair Street, part of the Second Street Corridor Connector, reopened to vehicle and pedestrian traffic. Click here to watch a feature video from MaconBibbTV about this milestone event in the ongoing redevelopment and revitalization of city.

The reopening marked the completion of the first of three phases of the Connector’s construction. Once all phases are complete, the Connector will have sidewalks, bicycle lanes, lighting, and landscaping, as well as upgraded storm sewer systems.

“The Second Street Corridor will connect our urban core with the rest of the county with a pedestrian and bike friendly road, including bike lanes, improved sidewalks, and increased greenspace,” says Mayor Robert Reichert. “This is just another step in revitalizing our entire community by strengthening its core.”

Phase 2 of this project (set to begin in the next few weeks) will start at the realigned Edgewood Avenue and go up to where the Connector will later be built over the railroad. This phase will also include the realignment of Second Street into the Connector. Phase 3 will be the construction of the Connector over the railroad to Hazel Street, as well as a major storm sewer improvement under Hazel Street.
