Methvin Street between Center and Fredonia streets, directly in front of the Gregg County Courthouse, will be closed. Additionally, the northbound lane of Center Street between Bank Alley and Methvin Street will also be closed.

“Our residents should expect it will be quite a while they will not have access to these two downtown roads, but [it will be] worth the outcome… there will be plenty of parking downtown through this new parking garage,” city of Longview Public Information Officer Richard Yeakley said.
