LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – The city is getting creative when it comes to transforming a vacant block of West Main Street.

City leaders have decided to transform the 600 block of West Main Street into a pop-up plaza and a beer garden – a space for art, music and movies.

The project, called Resurfaced, will involve local arts groups, architects, food trucks and local craft beer brewers.

The goal is to transition vacant properties into tourist attractions.

“It’s gonna be a temporary project that we think will draw people from all over the city into our central business district to see what’s happening and experience the city from a different and surprising perspective from many folks,” Mayor Greg Fischer said.

The pop-up plaza will be open from September 19 to October 25.

The city is also looking for volunteers to help transform the space.
