Traffic moves past the large holly tree Wednesday, Jan. 25, 2023, at the intersection of E.E. Butler Parkway and West Academy in Gainesville. The holly tree has been decorated for Christmas for 30 years, but will soon be taken down as part of the roundabout project at the site. - photo by Scott Rogers
The roundabout, which also would serve Academy Street NE leading to Brenau University, would be part of overall Green Street improvements that are being planned. Improvements along Green, which is lined with historic homes, would include a raised median, slightly wider lanes, rebuilt sidewalks and new streetlights.
