Pardon The Dust, Orange Barrels At Event Center Site
By Mike Perleberg
(Lawrenceburg, Ind.) – Sections of High and Walnut streets in downtown Lawrenceburg will be off limits to traffic for most of this week.
It’s part of the ongoing construction of the Lawrenceburg Event Center and Hotel. The $49 million facility is expected to open later this summer.
Before that happens, new sidewalks and streets surrounding the event center must be constructed. Walnut and High will each be closed for two days starting Monday, June 9, according to Bruce Tumlin with project manager Messer Construction.
Later this week, if weather permits, the final coat of asphalt will be laid. Crews hope to have Walnut and High streets open to at least one lane of traffic by Thursday.
Plenty of work is taking place inside the event center and hotel, too. Carpet and glass railings are being installed, Tumlin said. Bleachers are being assembled in the large multi-purpose room. In the nine-story hotel, workers are are prime painting, installing floor and wall tiles, and hanging drywall in the stairwells.
Last week, Hollywood Casino announced a July 1 hiring fair for a number of positions at the hotel and event center. Read more about the project by clicking the links below.
