As the city begins work on a streetscape project on North McDonough, one of the proposed changes is already in effect.

The project will reduce North McDonough Street to two lanes. The city has put up road barrels to implement the changes.

“Please be reminded that streetscape improvements are underway on North McDonough and that the street has been reduced to two lanes,” a press release from the city says. “The North McDonough Streetscape Improvements include reducing North McDonough to two vehicle lanes, wider sidewalks, and a two-way ‘cycle track’ on the west side of the street, along with traditional streetscape improvements and on-street parking. The project will also feature “green infrastructure” improvements to improve storm water quality.”

The streetscape project is occurring in conjunction with improvements to railroad crossings at the intersections of College and Howard avenues with Candler and McDonough streets.

The projects have a budget of about $5.5 million, about two-thirds of it coming from federal grants. It’s expected to take 12 to 18 months.
