The transformation of the old Executive Inn showroom lounge comes to a halt. Owensboro officials say they recently discovered corrosive damage to parts of the pier.

The old lounge is being converted into an observation deck that can hold special events. It's located behind the Owensboro Convention Center.

Officials say they originally planned to have it ready by this Fall. No word if the opening will be delayed.
