Two working class African-American communities that were developed in the early 20th Century are now the site of a 21-acre interchange under construction.
The new interchange will include five new bridges including two over the Talleyrand Terminal Railroad, one over Phoenix Avenue and two new bridges on MLK Parkway over the ramp that connects to 21st Street. The new interchange will be built with stronger concrete pavement and bridges to reduce future maintenance needs. The project also involves drainage improvements to the area including six new ponds to collect storm water. Henry L. Brown Kooker Park adjacent to the project will be improved including adding a lighted park and sidewalk entrance.
