Beach Street Streetscape

Beach Street Streetscape

The streetscape for Beach Street, which will reduce the roadway from four lanes to two lanes, was a concept identified as a need for the area in the Riverfront Master Plan, which was approved by the City Commission in July 2010. Pedestrian-orientated and aesthetics improvements to three blocks on Beach Street – between Orange Avenue and Bay Street – in downtown Daytona Beach are projected to begin in early 2020. The project will be completed in phases and work will be done during overnight hours to limit disruption of traffic and business.

Benefits of Beach Street Streetscape

  • Traffic lanes reduced from four to two lanes to slow traffic and create more parking for customers
  • Wider sidewalks in front of the storefronts, which will create more outdoor dining opportunities and pedestrian access
  • Shade trees along the sidewalks and preservation of the iconic Medjool Palms in the center median
  • New and brighter lighting
  • Reconstruction of the decorative arches damaged by Hurricane Irma
