Governor Beshear Presents $1.5 Million for Paducah Riverfront Redevelopment Project


PADUCAH, Ky. – November 24, 2015 – (RealEstateRama) — Governor Steve Beshear today ceremonially presented more than $1.5 million in state funding to support Paducah’s Riverfront Redevelopment Project, which aims to transform the community’s Ohio River shoreline.

“The vision is that of a largely barren Ohio River shoreline transformed into a place of pride for the community and enjoyment by citizens and visitors alike, now and for generations to come. When the current vision becomes a finished work, the Jackson Purchase will have even more reason to call itself a tourism destination,” Gov. Beshear said.

Phase 1-B will include completion of rock filling in the river to enable an expansion of Shultz Park, which now is a narrow thread along the city’s floodwall. The stone will be topped with soil, grass and landscaping. A gangway to the river will connect with a 340-foot “transient” dock, a floating facility that potentially could be expanded into a marina. The city’s contractor for Phase 1-B is MAC Construction and Excavating Inc.
