A Center City Transportation Project
This project is part of the Center City Transportation Plan adopted by City Council in 2006. This project will convert Poplar Street from a one-way street to a two-way street from 3rd Street to 6th Street.
- Two-way streets encourage lower traffic speeds as compared to one-way streets and typically result in environments that are more pedestrian friendly.
- The conversion project will be completed in coordination with Romare Bearden Park and the BB&T Ball Park.
A Center City Traffic Analysis was conducted which identified the transportation benefits of converting Mint Street and Poplar Street into two-way streets.
The project limits are from 3rd Street and Poplar Street Intersection to 6th Street and Poplar Street Intersection.
