The sagging Owensboro riverfront, is receiving a much needed face-lift.
With help from the Federal Government, Owensboro's riverfront looks a lot different than it used to.
Years of erosion have left it's mark. In a picture from the early 1900's, a road runs parallel to the Ohio River, but it's different now.
City leaders are asking the Federal Government to help fund the project.
McConnell is on the Senate Appropriations Committee, and believes he can get more money for Owensboro.
That's good news for the people who live in Owensboro, and enjoy coming to the riverfront.
The new riverfront is designed to run from the Riverpark Center, all the way to the Executive Inn.
