Downtown Road to Close for Casino Construction


Downtown Evansville is seeing the beginning steps of the new land-based casino.

Tropican was granted a request to permanently close S 3rd Ave. between 1st St. and Riverside Dr.

The road runs right next to the Le Merigot Hotel.

The new casino will stand there on Riverside Dr. and replace the riverboat casino.

Completion of the casino is expected in late 2017.
