Independent Cllr Seamus Weir has received confirmation that James Connolly Street is set to reopen before Christmas.
The Ballina Town Street has been closed due to a fire at a premise on their last March.
The closure of the street has led to traffic congestion in the town as well as difficulties for businesses on the street.
Cllr Weir received confirmation at today’s Municipal Meeting that the owner of the property will address the derelict building in the coming weeks.
It means the street should be set to reopen before the Christmas season.
Cllr Weir welcomed the news at today’s meeting of the Ballina Municipal District.
