STUART -- It took months, but the drive into the business district of downtown Stuart is looking a lot nicer.

That's because a recent project to beautify the downtown area was recently completed. The project, costing more than $1 million, reduced the number of lanes going from U.S. 1 into Stuart from four to two, but added wider sidewalks and landscaping.

Two firms, Captec Engineering and Lucido & Associates were involved with the design of the project.

Other improvements included adding lighting and crosswalks, reconfiguring parking spaces and placing a roundabout to help guide traffic.

The new street will eventually become more of the Stuart Main Street's downtown plan when the waterfront boardwalk will expand to include Colorado Avenue and even enlarging the beautify the small park located at the end of the avenue.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held by the city's community redevelopment agency the second week of May.
