Owensboro Pier Expected to be Opened for July 4th Celebrations

Owensboro residents will celebrate the riverfront’s newest addition just as they celebrate the country’s independence.

City engineers say the pier behind the Owensboro Convention Center is set to open as soon as this Friday.

Crews were on site Monday morning putting the finishing touches to the sidewalk.

Engineers say the pier was supposed to open back in May, but structural problems and high river levels delayed the opening.

A section of the pier had to be taken down because support columns deteriorated.
