LONGVIEW (KYTX) - Longview's City Council approved a quarter million dollar project for two downtown public parking lots. The parking lots are used for festivals and concerts that come to downtown Longview.
You can see patches, cracks, and rough surfaces that make it tough to drive on. The lots sit at the corners of Center and Cotton, and Cotton and Fredonia streets. The improvements come from a 56 million dollar street bond measure that was passed by voters in 2011. Council members are hoping the parking lot improvements will attract more visitors to downtown Longview.
