Shreveport, LA (KMSS) — If you drive down the 700 block of Texas Street in Shreveport you might notice the construction crews working on buildings along the historical district.
The Downtown Development Authority says 75 percent of the buildings there are under construction.
Thanks to a $250,000 dollar grant the department was awarded to help promote the City.
“Were really telling people about the story of downtown Shreveport, trying to encourage them to live here and to bring their business here; it’s all in downtown,” said Director of the Downtown Development Authority Liz Swaine.
The project is expected to last for at least a year.
