TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - A new look is coming to 1st Street in Terre Haute.

Crews have started the second phase of the project.

They're taking out rail ties left between the north and southbound lanes.

The work spans from Cherry Street to Farrington Street.

There will also be new left turn lanes at Farrington.

Workers will also do some curb work.

"It'll look better than what it looked like before with the railroad ties, and it is not really being used for anything - so we are going to make it look better," Brad Utz, the Director of Inspection for the City of Terre Haute said.

It's a 45-day long project.

The city hopes to have it wrapped up by Thanksgiving.
