The Penn Circle street name is vanishing from East Liberty, as part of a long effort to reverse the urban renewal disaster of the 1960s.
East Liberty Development Inc. announced that street signs have begun to be changed and the conversion will continue throughout the week.
Street names that were changed to Penn Circle will revert to their previous designations: Penn Circle South and Penn Circle East become Centre Avenue, as does Collins Street between Station Street and East Liberty Boulevard; Penn Circle West becomes Euclid Avenue; and Penn Circle North becomes Station Street.
A map of the new designations can be viewed on East Liberty Development's website.
