Gateway into Cairo gets a landscape facelift

By LeiLani Golden - bio | email

THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) –A grant from the Georgia Transportation Enhancement Program means a facelift for the gateway into the city of Cairo.

The intersection of First Avenue Northeast and Georgia Highway 38 is undergoing a $38,000 landscaping project.

A new curb and sod are already in place.

Plants and flowers will arrive soon to replace what used to be a large portion of asphalt, speed bumps, and white stripes.

"With all those bumps that was a little confusing when I first moved here," admits Cairo resident Jacqueline Allen. "With all the flowers and all that stuff it'll look a whole lot better and make coming into Cairo more presentable."

The grant will cover half of the project's costs.

The city will pay the other half.
