Beach Street Streetscape

Map showing Beach Street parking areas
Designs are nearly complete for improvements to three blocks on Beach Street – between Orange Avenue and Bay Street – in downtown Daytona Beach that will create a more pedestrian-oriented place for residents and visitors to enjoy the shopping and dining. The project will be completed in phases to limit disruption of traffic and business during normal business hours. 
 
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 about the second week of November 2019 and be completed prior to November 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
Further details of the plan will be shared with residents, merchants and stakeholders over the next several months.
