(Provo-AP) -- Downtown Provo is getting a makeover.

A 12-million dollar project is underway to revitalize Provo's historic downtown.

Street signs, parking and speed limit signs are being replaced that have a new special Provo design.

A new Utah County Health and Justice Building's almost done.

And demolition of the Wells Fargo Bank in downtown will start today.

That building will be replaced by seven stories of commercial and residential space.

Officials hope all these changes will lure more development downtown, which has happened in the past.

They say every successful project in downtown Provo has been built on the successes of projects that came before them.
