Clarkston, GA — The city of Clarkston celebrated the completion of its streetscape construction with a ribbon cutting and fireworks show at Refuge Coffee on Friday, Sept. 3.
The project, several years in the works, included infrastructure improvements, decorative streetlights, road resurfacing along E. Ponce de Leon Avenue, Norman Road and Market Street, traffic calming, miles of new curbing and sidewalks, decorative MARTA bus shelters, pergolas and benches and hundreds of new trees and permeable landscaping.
Clarkston Mayor Beverly Burks said, “I’m excited for the completion of our streetscapes project. It was so important as a city that we invested in ourselves. It provides economic opportunity and encourages others to invest in Clarkston. We are very honored to showcase what we’ve done for our residents and make this a place for people to come and enjoy.”
