To help local restaurants with their economic recovery, experimental partial street closures in downtown will continue and expand this weekend.
A portion of Lemon Avenue has been added to the partial street closure list, which already includes segments of State Street and lower Main Street. The partial closures allow restaurants to expand their dining footprint into the street.
closures will begin at 3:30 p.m. and end at midnight tonight and Saturday, May 30
and will include the following:
- 1300 block of Main Street (Palm Avenue to Mira Mar Court)
- State Street from the State Street Garage to Lemon Avenue
- Lemon Avenue from Main Street to the alley just north of State Street
Partial street closures are expected to be in effect each Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 3:30 p.m. to midnight, possibly through June.
The City is working with downtown merchants to determine interest in this experimental economic recovery program and possible expansion to other business districts. Affected street blocks may vary week to week based on input and interest from business owners.
