To support the development of the Savannah Arena, the City of Savannah will be improving Gwinnett Street.
On March 12, City Council approved a construction and beautification contract for the Gwinnett Street Widening Project to Preferred Materials, Inc. in the amount of $13,662,942. Improvements will include widening the existing two-lane roadway to a four-lane roadway with sidewalks, bicycle lanes, and a landscaped median. Widening of a section of the Springfield Canal will coincide with the construction of a new bridge to raise the existing roadway elevations.
The project is estimated to last 24 months with Gwinnett Street being closed for the duration of construction project. The current schedule is:
During the Gwinnett Street closure, Stiles Avenue will remain open as part of the detour.
