BOSTON, Mass. (WWLP) - It's been more than a week since the attack on the Boston Marathon and the city is slowly getting back to normal.
Federal authorities believe there are no additional explosives to worry about on Boylston Street, where the attack happened.
That's why the area will reopen soon allowing life in Boston to return to some normalcy.
More than a week after the attack on the Boston Marathon, Boylston street remains quiet, blocked off by barriers decorated with supportive messages and flowers.
It's quickly become one of the most visited and photographed locations in Boston.
"I've never been to Boston before and I feel like since I came in Saturday after everything happened, it'd be unfortunate to not be able to come here and see what it was like," said Pittsburgh's Lexie Mastro.
Three people were killed, more than 250 wounded in the April 15th explosions.
It brought Boston to a stand-still in the following days and now plans are in place to get things back to normal.
Restaurant owners and people who live down this street have already been allowed down and soon the barriers will be taken down and the public will be let in as well.
Although visitors admit, they expect the area won't feel the same.
"I feel like, it would be eerie but I feel like the businesses need a lot of help and support too because they've been shut down," said Liza Hill who is visiting Boston.
Bostonians say despite the bad memories the street holds, they will get back to life as usual and come back strong, Boston Strong.
"I think that's the whole key, to get back out there and not have it take away from your normal life, right," said Winchester's Darrell Edler.
"I knew right away that this town would bounce back pretty well. These are resilient people and if anyone had to go through this, it's this town, they'll shine through," added Mike Ingrisano.
I talked to some of the police officers guarding the street today they said the earliest the street could open is later Tuesday night after they've finished cleaning the street and sidewalks.
