City of Ardmore officially opens East Main streetscape

ARDMORE, Okla. (KXII) - The City of Ardmore officially opened its newest city construction project with a ribbon cutting Friday morning.

The East Main Streetscape project cost roughly $4 million and took more than a year to complete.

The city changed a portion of Main Street from a one way to a two way street, widened sidewalks and repainted the road for back-in parking.

"It's really an exciting and inviting area for people" Vice-mayor Douglas Pfau said. "We really want people to come to our downtown. We have a lot of highway traffic. You know, we have people that come off all the time that eat at places. We want to bring them downtown to this area because it's historic, beautiful and its really meaningful for Ardmore."

The city will host a special back-in parking teaching event downtown this Sun. June 23 from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.
