General McIntosh Blvd. to close this week

With road work on East Broad Street set to wrap up Tuesday, the project’s focus will shift to President Street and General McIntosh Boulevard. General McIntosh is tentatively scheduled to be closed to traffic beginning Wednesday, and continuing for most of the remainder of the project.  
During this closure, traffic will continue on President Street to East Broad Street. Four lanes of traffic (two lanes in each direction) on President Street will remain open at all times. Access to the Savannah Riverfront Marriott will remain open from Bay Street throughout the project.
Work on President Street/General McIntosh includes raising the elevation of the roadway between 5 and 8 feet to alleviate street flooding. The project will also replace aging utility lines, improve the streetscape, and add new and reconfigured intersections. Major improvements to the Bilbo Canal, which passes beneath President Street, will improve drainage throughout downtown.
