SUPERIOR - Throughout the last several years, some say the New Year's Eve hustle and bustle on Tower Ave. has dwindled a bit.
"It was hopping, but now it's slowing down a little," said Darlene Lindberg, from Who's Bar.
However, at the same time next year, the area will look much different after the century–old street is torn up and re–built.
"It's going to be nice, it'll be really nice," Lindberg said. "People will be coming back just to see what it's like."
"We're looking forward to the new street-scape," Aaron Dandrea from VIP said. "It's going to be pretty exciting."
Several business owners on Tower Avenue acknowledged that it could be a rough time while construction is actually going, but many also agree that it will pay off in the end.
"I think it's a big opportunity for people to come to Superior," Dandrea said.
For people at VIP, the new attraction downtown could be huge.
"We were in small place across the street and this is kind of the center of what's going to be downtown now in the future here we're hoping for," Dandrea said.
Some feel the future could look more like the past.
"It'd be nice to go back to olden days," Lindberg said.
On the other hand, it could be a completely new beginning.
"The town's open for business as they say," Dandrea said. "We're definitely looking to bring some new faces and places to Tower Avenue."
Construction on Tower Ave. is set to begin in April.
