WHAT IT IS:  The Harrisonburg Main Street Streetscape project is part of Harrisonburg’s ongoing efforts to revitalize its downtown by investing in the downtown infrastructure.

WHEN WILL IT BE DONE: Construction is slated for completion by December 2014!

WHERE WILL THE IMPROVEMENTS BE MADE: See the photo above.   The sidewalk and hardscape areas will be improved from Bruce Street all the way to Court Square.   This will create a more pedestrian friendly corridor and further enhance the downtown we know and love.
