    Officials say the work will cost $1.5 million in total, though the city will get significant help from a fund hosted by The Dallas Foundation. Funds for the restoration are being collected into the Deleay Plaza Renovation Project Fund at that site.

    Construction is set to begin next fall and should be open in time to mark the 50th anniversary of Kennedy's Assassination in 2013.
