Cleveland ready to show off its renovated Public Square

CLEVELAND (AP) — Cleveland’s renovated Public Square is almost ready for its debut.

And it’s just in time for the Republican National Convention that’s just three weeks away.

The city is planning to hold a rededication ceremony on Thursday to show off the $50 million project in the heart of Cleveland’s downtown.

Improvements include increasing the square’s green space, closing it to traffic except for buses and opening a cafe at the site.

Workers have completed all of the construction and have started taking fencing and barriers around the site.
