Green Street Gate

Beginning Tuesday, the Green Street Gate will temporarily open 30 minutes earlier on weekdays, or at 4:30 a.m. 

Additionally, from about 2:45 to 5 p.m., traffic exiting the Green Street Gate from First Street will be directed to merge left into the two outside lanes prior to the intersection of First Street and Perimeter Road.  

The temporary merge will allow traffic making a right turn from Perimeter Road onto First Street to exit through the gate without having to stop at the intersection.  

Traffic cones will be used to help direct the flow of traffic.

Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard

Construction is scheduled to begin in about 10 days on Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard to renew the asphalt road, curb and gutter, sidewalk with crosswalks, and handicap-accessible curb ramps. 

The project will correct existing drainage issues along the road. It widens the two ramps at the intersection of Robins Parkway enabling semi-trucks to make turns on and off MLK Jr. Boulevard.

Two lanes in one direction will be closed at a time. Side streets and driveways will be accessible. Once construction begins, Gate 5 at MLK Jr. Blvd., will be inaccessible to all traffic for the first couple of weeks.

Following that, the gates will re-open, but motorists are urged to exercise caution as there will be ongoing construction. Estimated project completion is in August.
