The July 8 event features ROCK 100 DJ Southside Steve, who will flip the honorary switch marking the roads’ transformation into two-way streets. The event begins at 6 p.m. in downtown Lawrenceville, with restaurants Local Republic and McCray’s Tavern participating in the festivities.

Perry and Clayton streets from Pike Street south are affected by the change. The process will take between two and three weeks , with crews working on the roads at night. The plan is part of the city’s Livable Communities Initiative, intended to make city roads safer and easier to navigate.

Drivers should take caution on these downtown streets in the early days of the switch, the city said.
