Set up for Harley 110th shuts down Layton Ave.
GREENFIELD -- In Greenfield, Layton Avenue is closed from 60th street to 64th street for the Harley 110th.
The main reason is that the House of Harley is in the area and is being given two days to set up without traffic before things kick off this week.
There are a number of signs around the area that let drivers know where to go and what businesses are open.
CBS 58 spoke with The Board Game Barrister, located across the street from the House of Harley, about what they expect in the coming days.
The executive manager, Gordon Lugauer, said he's still wondering if the thousands that shows up for the 110th will mean foot traffic in his store.
"I hope it's fun and not too painful," Lugauer said.
He did admit that he's cutting back staffing just in case business is down.
The House of Harley sent out a letter to their neighbors saying in part:
"Our preparation includes development of a traffic plan to safely handle traffic and pedestrians, development of infrastructure such as trash collection and trash patrols, ample toilets, a motorcycle parking plan, and 24 hour security."
He said motorcyclists are not as readily visible as motor vehicles are, and can be harder to pick up in a car driver’s line of sight, especially at intersections. Bikers appear “bladed” on city streets because of the narrow width of a motorcycle. Our eyes are trained to pick up wider objects that sit up higher in our spatial environment while driving a car. This causes car drivers to miss seeing them until it is too late.
