METROPOLIS, Ill. - After many months of safety upgrades, Honeywell Metropolis will begin restarting part of their operations Thursday.

The plant will begin "front end" operations, which includes ore production work and green salt production.

Honeywell won't be able to resume full operations until they receive final approval from the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

Honeywell officials say they hope to have that decision sometime next month.
