Pedestrian-orientated and aesthetics improvements to three blocks on Beach Street – between Orange Avenue and Bay Street – in downtown Daytona Beach will begin in January 2020. The project will be completed in phases and work will be done during overnight hours to limit disruption of traffic and business.
Highlights of the proposed Beach Street Streetscape include:
•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
•Traffic lanes reduced from four to two lanes to slow traffic and create more parking for customers
•New and brighter lighting
•Reconstruction of the decorative arches damaged by Hurricane Irma
•Work is expected to begin in January 2020
•The project will be divided into six sections, with each section to be completed prior to the next section being started
•Work would start on the east side (Riverfront Park side), northbound side between Orange and Magnolia avenues and close the outer lane closest to the park
•Sidewalks on the west side of Beach Street will be open throughout the project and work to replace pavers will occur after business hours
•The design has been closely coordinated with the proposed design of Riverfront Park
