City Council Approves Funds for LST Visiting Center

During its regularly scheduled meeting Monday night, the Evansville City Council approved the transfer of $1.3 million dollars to be used to build the LST Visitors Center along the Evansville Riverfront.

It was the second reading on the transfer before the vote of 9-0 was approved.

The total budget for the LST relocation project sits at $3.6 million. Work has started on the mooring barge that will be used to dredge the area.

Once the river heads into a safe level, work will be on the dredging. More than half the money will be spent on the LST Visitors Center.

  1. “Work has started on the mooring barge that will be used to dredge the area.”

    Uh, you might want to revisit that comment. The mooring barge is a vessel which will be located between the shore and the LST. The LST will be tied to the mooring barge when the LST is in port. The mooring barge does not perform dredging operations. The former casino boat docking area will be dredged so the mooring barge and LST can be located there.

  2. Was there anything leftover from the riverboat that the LST is going to use? This seems like another well intentioned idea gone awry.
