Longview Downtown Renovation Completed

A year's renovation of downtown Longview has been completed. Last July, construction began on a three block area from Tyler street between High and Green. The million-dollar plus undertaking included landscaping, replacing water and sewer lines, sidewalks and a clock tower in the median on Tyler street.

The renovation was designed to make the aging downtown area more appealing to shoppers. The goal was to beautify the neighborhood and bring business back to downtown.
