Cairo recently received a grant from the Georgia Transportation Enhancement Program for more than $19,000 to landscape the intersection of First Avenue Northeast and GA Highway 38.
City officials say a curb and sod have already been installed, and plants and flowers will arrive soon.
The improvements are taking the placed of a large portion of asphalt that was painted over with large white stripes.
The total for the project is a little more than $38,000.
The city says it will absorb the remainder of the budgeted costs.
