Beginning Monday, February 21, 2022, the intersection of Harrison Avenue and Beach Drive will be closed as construction on the Harrison Avenue Streetscape Project moves north.

Motorists are encouraged to use W. 4th Street, Oak Avenue, and Luverne Avenue as an alternate route.

Royal American Construction began the project in October 2021 at the intersection of Harrison Avenue and Government Street and has made great progress in the first block. The project is being completed in phases and includes reconstruction of Harrison Avenue from Government Street to 4th Street. The major items of work include replacing water, sewer and stormwater infrastructure, laying cobblestones for the roadway, widening sidewalks, and installing soil cells, landscape, lighting and signage.

Harrison Avenue between Beach Drive and Government Street remains closed as the work in this block continues. Access to businesses along Harrison Avenue will be maintained during the project with sidewalks and temporary walkways.
