Port Authority to consider LST feasibility deal

A step may be taken Monday afternoon toward the proposed relocation of LST 325.

Mayor Winnecke’s office says the Port Authority of Evansville will consider an engineering service agreement.

It would look into the feasibility of moving the World War II ship from its location off Waterworks Road to the current site of the Tropicana riverboat along Riverside Drive.

The gaming company is moving its operation to dry land across the street, after the Indiana General Assembly voted in 2015 to allow such moves.

The state’s gaming commission approved the Tropicana move last year, and the company began building the new casino in July.

The company hopes to open the land-based casino before the end of this year.
