Head downtown Thursday, Nov. 1 to check out the brand new look of the summer’s Clematis Streetscape Project. The City of West Palm Beach and the West Palm Beach Community Redevelopment Agency will host a ribbon cutting and street party celebration on the 300 block from 5-9 p.m.
The unveiling marks the completion of the first phase, which transformed the 300 block of Clematis Street between S. Dixie Highway and S. Olive Avenue to a more pedestrian-friendly area. Project highlights include a curbless street that prioritizes pedestrians, narrower traffic lanes to slow down traffic and wider sidewalks for more walkway and dining space.
The ribbon cutting will be held at S. Dixie Highway and Clematis Street at 5:20 p.m., featuring live music and giveaways. The party will be followed by Clematis by Night, which runs from 6-9 p.m. at the east end of Clematis Street.
The 300 block of Clematis Street officially opens to traffic on Friday, Nov. 2.
