Updated: Tuesday, October 8 2013, 08:32 PM EDTThe Main street makeover in Hendersonville is finally complete. But the cost has come in nearly double what some had originally planned to spend. City leaders had talked about spending between 1 and a half to 2 million dollars to renovate the downtown street. But the actual final total price is about $3.7 million.New city manager John Connet says the project never experienced any cost over-runs. He says contractors came in at their bid price and construction was on budget. But he says the project which spanned three years and was done in phases grew over that period, with additions and improvements that weren't originally considered. He says the decision to expand the project beyond 6th avenue to 7th avenue also added to the cost. Local residents and businesses are pleased with the final product. The city will hold a dedication ceremony and ribbon cutting on Friday.Main St. Makeover
