Can I drive on River Street? 

Yes, it is one way flowing west (Talmadge Memorial Bridge end) to east end.  Dropping passengers should be on the right (sidewalk) side.

How do I drive down there? 

The intersection of MLK Jr. Blvd. and River Street is blocked right now due to construction.  Driving access to River Street is from Bay Street via the Barnard Street Ramp, Abercorn Street Ramp, Lincoln Street Ramp, and East Broad Street Ramp. 

Is there parking on River Street? 

Yes there are 3 city lots and 1 private parking lot – lots are located at the Barnard Ramp, Abercorn Ramp and Lincoln Ramp: https://www.savannahga.gov/Facilities?clear=False
