A portion of the new Tucker Boulevard roadway was opened in time for evening rush tonight, November 30, 2011.
The newly reopened section runs between Cole Street on the south and 13th Street on the north. Two lanes in each direction are open.
This portion of Tucker Boulevard was closed to traffic in May 2010.
This stretch of Tucker is a portion of Phase 1 of the larger Tucker Boulevard Project. The remainder of Phase I is expected to re-open during 2012.
Phase II of the Tucker Boulevard Project, from Gay Street to Washington Avenue, is expected to be completed by the end of 2012.
