Commercial Circle construction part of bigger vision

mstucka@macon.comFebruary 28, 2014 

WARNER ROBINS -- Construction crews are working to upgrade Commercial Circle, a long-troubled area that is the closest thing the city has to a downtown.

Workers are installing sidewalks and new lights, with plans for sprinkler systems that can sustain landscaping. The plans were launched by former Mayor Chuck Shaheen and are being run through the city’s Public Works department. The project started off as upgrades for storm drainage but turned into a $150,000 effort that would bring wider sidewalks, decorative lighting and landscaping.

In mid-February, members of the Warner Robins Redevelopment Agency were told the improvements are an initial phase of a much bigger vision. The agency’s leader, Gary Lee, said then that “we’re just trying to repair it, to restore it and to bring it back to life.”
