Construction along Main Street in Broken Arrow's Rose District is making progress.

FOX23 has been following the $3.7 million revitalization since it began.

Over the weekend, construction finished up on some of the pavement on the east side of the street in the Rose District, and one restaurant owner said the new patio could mean more business.

For months, Veronica Reyes has been patient.

"A lot of people might get a little discouraged to see orange everywhere," she said.

Now that construction cones have disappeared in front of Fiesta Mambo, it paved the way for a boom in business.

"The very moment they opened it, we had people for lunch come in and sit down," she said.

Having five tables outside means more money.

"It's really going to help us a lot," she said.

As the area starts to take shape, merchants up and down the street are being impacted in different ways.

Southern Magnolia and 1907 just opened, and owners told FOX23 things are going well so far.

The opening date of Bruhouse Grill is dependent on the construction, so the plan right now is for crews to finish it as fast as they can.

Crews laid the footing for some more new developments, and they've made space for a few different restaurants. FOX23 has learned one of those restaurants will be In The Raw.

Not everyone is happy with the change. The owners of Ruffles and Bows didn't want to go on camera but told FOX23 they are closing doors because of the construction, and they didn't feel like they fit in the new district.

Crews finished up the pavement on the east side of the street and are now headed to west side.
