The St. Cloud Street and George Street intersection received a major facelift in 1999. The west side of George Street has been closed off, creating a three-way (or "T") intersection. Traffice lights were installed at the intersection, including left-turn signals when turning south onto George Street and east onto St. Cloud Street.
George Street is now a four lane street with a median for lane changes south of the intersection and a concrete dividing median north of the intersection. St. Cloud Street also has a dividing median between the left (south) turn lane and the right (north) turn lane.
