Community hopes to revamp Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

Plans are being made to revamp parts of Martin Luther King Blvd. in Columbus.

Community leaders and residents voiced their opinion on how to better the roadways. According to the President of the Young Minority Leaders there is a push to file down the street from four lanes to three to decrease vehicle accidents.

They also hope to erect an MLK outdoor learning center to dedicate to the history and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

The next scheduled meeting for the Martin Luther King Streetscape Project will be Thursday, August 22, at 5:30 p.m. at the Lewis Memorial Baptist Church (1022 Adair Avenue).
