(Lawrenceburg, Ind.) – A smokestack will come crashing down in Lawrenceburg on Wednesday morning.

An implosion of a concrete smokestack at the former Tanners Creek Power Plant site will be performed at 9:00 a.m. The site is where Commercial Development Company, Inc. affiliate Tanners Creek Development, LLC is demolishing the old power plant to make way for a potential port on the Ohio River.

The Lawrenceburg Police Department says the public will be able to watch the implosion from the river levee. AEP Drive will be closed, as police look to keep the people a safe distance from the blast.

If you cannot catch it in person, Eagle Country 99.3 will have live video of the event on our Facebook page at 9:00 a.m.
