Davenport: Big Changes For Harrison Street

Updated:

Davenport city leaders approved some big changes to one of the busiest streets in the city Wednesday night, March 13, 2013.

Harrison from Locust to Fifth Streets will be going down from four to two lanes. The two outer lanes would be used for parking, starting after drivers pass J.B. Young, K-8 School.

However, the western lane will be used for traffic between three and nine a.m. After that, there will be three lanes of traffic.

The change is something many businesses along this stretch of Harrison wanted.

Scott Tunnicliff, from the Hilltop Campus Village says this is a great development for the Hilltop area.

"We believe this will help a great deal and go a long way toward stimulating investment in the area so businesses can come in, create jobs, give the place a face lift."

Since this is a big change, the city will put up corresponding signs and repaint the street to educate the public.
