Memphis, TN Leaders Unveil a New Manassas, Safe for Bikes and Pedestrians (Traffic Calming)

Drive there today, and you’ll find a whole new Manassas.

The Medical-District street between Martin Luther King Jr. and Poplar has been completely changed after it was re-paved by the city in April. The re-imagining and renovation of the street is thanks to the city of Memphis and the Memphis Medical District Collaborative (MMDC).

The new street improvements were formally unveiled in a ceremony Wednesday morning.

The re-paving project shrank the former five-lane street to three “to better accommodate traffic flow from Poplar to MLK Avenues and added dedicated bike lanes to connect existing and future bicycle routes in the city.”
