Business owners in Longview hope a downtown renovation will boost business. They broke ground this morning on Tyler street for the downtown area's beautification and improvement project. It's expected to take 9 to 12 months to complete. The historic bricks lining the old street section will be used for an historic display. The 3.4 million dollar revovation will include a clock tower, period street lights, landscaping and much more. Construction begins this month and will close three blocks of Tyler street from Fredonia to High streets.
