DENISON, Texas (KTEN) — The latest phase of the ambitious Designing Downtown Denison beautification project is ready for business.

The 200 block of Main Street reopened Wednesday after the reconstruction project that started on April 18. While the end of the block remains closed, all businesses will now be accessible.

"We are more than excited; it's really cool!" said Rene Teague-Osuna from Main Street Salon and Suites. "We had a lot of fun watching them do their thing. Yeah, there have been some hiccups here and there, but big deal... that is growing pains." 

The city said the intersection of Ruck and Main Street will remain closed for the next phase of the Designing Downtown Denison construction project.
