MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - New speed bumps are finally installed on Riverside Drive, according to the Downtown Neighborhood Association.

After being shut down for months, the renovated area is reopening with efforts to slow down traffic and create a safer environment for pedestrians.

In April, the Memphis River Parks Partnership presented plans to drastically alter Riverside as part of the $60 million renovations to Tom Lee Park.
