This project will reconstruct the oval plaza, lower plaza and sidewalk along Myrtle Avenue and staircases at St. Edwards Street and Willoughby Street and at DeKalb Avenue and Washington Park. The work will include pavement, drainage and handrail reconstruction, and new plantings, water features, lighting, seating, barbecues, and adult fitness equipment.

Project Update: The procurement completion date has changed. Some of the common reasons why a completion date has changed are: the vendor, project and/or contract documents are under review, the agency is securing additional funding to award, or it was in the City’s best interest to extend the bid opening date.
