Construction on a busy stretch of Court Street in Flint gets in the way of business

He’s experienced construction happening right in front of the restaurant several times before. “I’m pleasantly surprised at how steady we’re staying, and that just shows that we have very determined customers,” Harris said. “Every year there’s been something,” Harris said. “There’s a pipe underneath Court Street that cracked or broke, so one of the sewers was shooting up water.”

Leo’s like other restaurants has been through a lot this last year with COVID-19 shutdowns, re-openings, mask mandates, capacity restrictions and now he has to deal with construction. Harris’ business and many others occupy the roughly 1-mile stretch where that work is underway. “It’s another obstacle that’s out of our control, just like everything else that’s happened in the past year and a half,” said Stefan Harris who owns Leo’s Coney Island on Court Street just west of Center Road. “We can be upset about it, but that will take away from what makes this place so great is our attitudes here.”

Only the westbound lane along Court Street is open — and that’s for business traffic only. One business owner said the project only adds to an already difficult year.

“I made some adjustments in the back of the parking lot and made a makeshift entrance back there,” Harris said. “I took away some parking spaces so no cars or anything would get hit.” It’s a headache for his customers and employees having to figure out alternate ways of accessing the restaurant, but Harris said people will resort to any means to their Leo’s Coney Island fix. He’s helping them by making it easier to get in and out.
