State Line Avenue is an iconic part of Texarkana.
Thousands of visitors and residents drive the dividing line between Texas and Arkansas each day.
However, there haven't been any noticable improvements to the corridor in decades.
"I would like this area to look good. I take a lot of pride in this town both sides and I would just like it to look better," said Jeff Reddell, Pace Glass owner.
Reddell is ready for some changes to State Line avenue.
His neighbor, Midas Auto Service owner Ty Harris agrees.
"First impressions are everything, and we leave a little to be desired on State Line," said Harris.
The Texarkana Metropolitan Planning Organization recently prepared a study of stateline.
Director Brad McCaleb says the study had a two-fold purpose.
"The focus was primarily on traffic operations, and then secondarily, was looking for opportunities to improve the overall appearance of the corridor," said McCaleb.
Recommendations from the study included raised medians, sidewalks, fewer billboards, more green space and slower speeds on the corridor.
Texarkana Chamber of Commerce requested the study.
Chamber officials say they'd like to see the project start in downtown Texarkana and then move North down State Line Avenue.
"What we'd like to do is put a plan of action in place around the courthouse, and carry it up to about 7th street," said Mark Bledsoe, Vice President of Chamber Operations.
Bledsoe says downtown is good place to start because it would give the community a chance to see what all of State Line could eventually be.
There's been no major construction to state line since the 1970's.
Chamber officials say there have been at least two studies in the last decade but they didn't include traffic operations.
While there are small funds available for the project, chamber officials are now in the process of requesting state grant money.
