Albany -- Coming soon to downtown Albany; some changes to the Ray Charles Plaza.

The city of Albany and Albany Tomorrow Incorporated are working to remove the open piping you may have noticed down there.

Right now there are several open pipes from the plaza leading down to the Flint River. There is also netting in place to prevent erosion from the water flow.

Project managers are now finalizing a new design that will take some of those things away to make the plaza more visitor-friendly.

"The new change will incorporate this by piping it underground, and it will be of better use for walkers and bikers on the trail," said ATI Senior Project Manager, Kenneth Cribb.

The changes to the Ray Charles Plaza landscape is scheduled to start in mid-July and is expected to last for six to eight weeks.
