Reconstruction begins on Deorio's Pizza

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - A popular pizza place in Columbus is taking steps toward reopening its doors.

Construction on Deorio's Pizza located off Macon Road has officially begun as the plywood boards have been taken down from the front of the restaurant.

The business was damaged when a man accidentally crashed into the building last month. The crash also injured two Columbus police officers.

Deorio's manager Laura Jenkins says construction is moving right along.

Jenkins says they hope to reopen officially sometime next week
