Sims Pkwy. & Oakley Dr.
Because the majority of the Harrisburg July 4th Celebration will be held at Harrisburg Park, 191 Sims Parkway, and the parade will be held along Highway 49 from Captain Steve’s Restaurant to Robinson Ave, the town will be closing Oakley Drive and Sims Parkway to vehicular traffic from 4 p.m. until 11 p.m. on July 3 and July 4. These roads are heavily used for pedestrian traffic during the event and the road closures are being enforced to increase the safety of all attendees.
Residents of Sims Pkwy. and Oakley Dr. may utilize the roads to travel to and from homes but are strongly encouraged to limit vehicular traffic during closures and expect delays.
Please call 704-455-7275 for more information.
The two northbound lanes of Highway 49 will close prior to the Harrisburg July 4th Parade, scheduled for Tuesday, July 4, 2017, starting at 9 a.m. Lanes will reopen at the conclusion of the parade at approximately 11 a.m.
The two southbound lanes of Highway 49 will remain open throughout the event and traffic will be redirected to one lane traveling northbound and one lane traveling southbound until northbound lanes reopen at 11 a.m. We strongly discourage spectators of the parade to stand on the southbound lane side of Highway 49 to view the parade.
