Work continues on the historic Webber Building in downtown Montgomery following a partial collapse in June.

Montgomery Mayor Todd Strange says he's spoken with developers of the building and they are confident the building is now stable.

Crews deemed the area safe enough to reopen portions of North Perry and all of Monroe Street, as well as the adjacent buildings.

The building partially collapsed back on June 26 while workers were renovating it. Everyone got out in time and there were no injuries.

The building was constructed in 1860 as a theater and was later converted to a department store for which it retains its name.
