Danville, VA - Phase one of the planning is 75 % complete on The River District Streetscape project in Danville.

You can see how far the project has come at a forum Wednesday that starts at 7 p.m. at the Community Market on Craghead Street

Wednesday afternoon they gave an update for merchants, building owners and downtown stakeholders on the progress.

Current design plans were presented that focus on Main Street and several others.

"For the past several months we've been working on a plan to do the Main St. redevelop main St. and to add brick sidewalks to add new curbing to improve the storm drainage and just give it a little nicer downtown feel," said Mark Lieberth, a landscape architect.

The architects say they considered ideas that business owners and residents shared with them along the way.
