AUSTIN -- The "Greetings from Austin" mural is greeting a $10,000 makeover.

Friday crews started scraping the mural on the side of Roadhouse Relics on South 1st Street.

It was first painted in 1998 and was starting to crumble. The restoration will include blasting the original paint and improving the lighting.

Crews hope to be finished with the project in a month when they will hold a re-dedication ceremony.
