Downtown Two-Way Conversion

In response to recommendations of downtown planning work, most recently in the Chattanooga Forward Downtown Task Force and the City Center Plan and as far back as early 2000s, the Chattanooga Department of Transportation is studying the possibility of converting the downtown one-way streets back to two-way streets.

Join CDOT from 5:30-7:30pm on Thursday, December 7 at the Development Resource Center (1250 Market Street, Room 1A) for a Public Kickoff Meeting to learn more about the two-way conversion study, what streets are being studied, and how to be involved.
