The project is complete with new brick pavers, landscaping and widened sidewalks, which was all paid for with a voter approved 2008 bond.

Vendors, musicians, live artists and other entertainment will all be part of the block party and ArtWalk which will also take place on La Retama Park from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Business owners on Chaparral Street are also pleased with the completion of the construction. Richard Lomax with Water Street says it was a difficult 17 months, but says they look forward to the benefits of the project in the long run.
