Downtown Valdosta looking north, 1989

This image illustrates big developments in Valdosta at the end of the 20th century. Prominent additions to downtown included the completed James Beck overpass (at the center of the photo) to clear traffic flow over the rail lines through the busy area, and the construction of the current Lowndes County Health Department, on the left of the overpass, at 206 South Patterson Street.
