Magnolia Avenue Streetscape Project Ribbon-Cutting Dec. 12, 2019

The $7 million Magnolia Avenue Streetscape Project is nearing completion. The first phase of the project is substantially complete, with work on second phase expected to be wrapped up by spring 2020.

The project includes landscaped center medians and left-turn lanes, street trees, wider sidewalks, bike lanes, safer and stamped crosswalks with pedestrian signals, and enhanced transit stops and shelters on Magnolia Avenue between Jessamine and North Bertrand streets.

Mayor Rogero, City Council members, City staff, TDOT staff, representatives of the project team and neighborhood stakeholders will cut a ribbon to celebrate the streetscape improvements on Dec. 12, 2019 at 10 a.m. near the intersection of Jessamine and Magnolia Avenue.
