Eight months after being closed for a complete streetscape redesign and major utilities upgrade, this historic downtown street reopened as part of the Hypolita Street Festival on Friday, December 5, 2014. The festival included a ribbon-cutting ceremony and live entertainment to mark the completion of the Downtown Improvement District project’s first phase. Local business owners, city officials, property owners and residents were in attendance to celebrate the completion. Spanish Street and Treasury Street are the next areas to undergo a similar renovation.
