ABILENE, Texas (BigCountryHomepage.com) – the board of Abilene’s Tax Increment Reinvestment Zone (TIRZ) voted Thursday afternoon to make a few changes to the Downtown Abilene we know now, and add some walkability to Cypress Street.

Although still in its very early stages of a makeover, renderings released in the TIRZ board meeting show how Cypress Street could soon look.

The TIRZ board said it is seeking an additional $300,000 and if approved, the project is cited to improve traffic flow, lighting and walkability. Construction could begin as early as late 2023.
