Haywood Street Businesses Open During Construction

The Haywood Streetscape Project is getting closer to completion. The project began early this year and includes water, sewer and stormwater work; new and widened sidewalks; street amenities including trees, benches and bike racks; and milling and paving of Haywood Street. 

Businesses along Haywood Street remain open during construction. The Asheville Downtown Association, in partnership with the City of Asheville, has supported businesses with creative wayfinding signage throughout the construction area. 

These businesses have faced both the impacts of a major construction project and the pandemic in 2020, making the year particularly difficult. If you’re out and about downtown, consider stopping by. You’ll find great restaurants, fun boutiques, arts and crafts galleries, chocolate, ice cream and more!
