Downtown Longview Renovation Final Phase

      Much to the delight of some East Texas merchants , a downtown beautification project in Longview has entered its final stage. Phase 3 of the downtown Longview renovation project is slated to begin Monday morning.

    The 3-point-4 million dollar facelift includes water and sewer system improvements, street paving , landscaping , lighting and benchs, and a nostalgic clock tower in the median with lighted flagpoles. Many area merchants were concerned that street closings would hurt their business, but with the project ahead of schedule and near completion, fears are subsiding.

    Monday Tyler street will be closed from Center street to Fredonia. The project is expected to be completed in 60 to 90 days.
