Downtown Longview Streetscape

Monday, November 17, 2014 - 10:45pm

Construction on the City of Longview's downtwon streetscape project is progressing smoothly and is scheduled to be completed by the end of the year. All involved in the project would like to thank the downtown businesses and members of the community for their cooperation and patience throughout the construction. Longview Mayor Don Jenson called the $1.8 million project a “re-investment in our community,” adding it should encourage people to visit downtown, stay longer and come back more often. The project, paid for almost entirely through grants, will replace sidewalks, crosswalks and trees, add lighting, benches, irrigation and other features along a 3-block section of Commerce Avenue.
