HARRISONBURG, Va. (WHSV) - Harrisonburg City Public Works has announced that changes to North Liberty Street between Gay Street and West Rock Street/Noll Drive are being made this week as the Friendly City works to improve the experience of visitors to the Northern end of Downtown.

Public Works says changes include reducing traffic to one lane, southbound only; adding a bicycle lane; and installing curb bump outs. ADA ramps are being built at the Gay Street corner.

“This area of Downtown has become very popular,” Harrisonburg Director of Public Works Tom Hartman said. “With these improvements to the 300 block of North Liberty Street, visitors will be able to move about in a safer manner and allow them to better enjoy their visit.”

Officials say work is expected to be complete next week.
