With two festivals in Harrison over the weekend, there will be several street closings.
The Crawdad Days Music Festival and May Days on the Square both start Friday.
Police Capt. Clint Toliver said Lake Shore Drive at Main Street and Willow Street will be closed about 9 a.m. Friday.
Main Street will be closed at Central Avenue, Union Road, Nicholson, and Walnut/East South Avenue beginning at noon Friday. Toliver said detour signs will be in place for those people approaching the top of Harrison Hill at Union Road.
Toliver suggests drivers take Union Road to Womack, then Womack past Woodland Heights Preschool. Womack turns into South Walnut at the bottom of the hill, so drivers can follow Walnut to Old Stonewall Road to exit onto South Pine/Highway 7 South.
Main will also be closed from Stephenson to Central, thus leaving Central/Highway 7 open to through traffic. Lake Shore Drive will also be closed at Pine Street to allow use of the bridge as a walkway from the parking area at the old junior high.
For May Days on the Square, the three side streets around the courtpark — Stephenson, Willow and Rush — will be closed beginning at 5 p.m. Friday. That allows for proceedings in Boone County Circuit Court to be completed. The car show is around the courtpark as well.
There is a possibility that other closings could come up depending on crowd size, and to accommodate the 5K Run that starts at 8 a.m. Saturday. Spring Street south of Central is already closed due to the carnival.
The parking lot in front of Watts and Webb from Willow Street to Main Street has been designated as handicapped parking, so Willow will still be open for access.
Floodlights will be placed at Lake Shore Drive and Pine Street and at Central Avenue and Spring Street for safe pedestrian crossing.
