Breaking ground for new Evansville hotel on Monday

Posted: Updated:
EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) -

After a series of delays, ground will be broken today on Evansville's new downtown convention hotel.

The groundbreaking was originally scheduled for late January but with extreme winter weather the date had to be pushed back.

Developers say they are ready to get the project going.

The lot has been cleared and is now ready for construction to begin.

The groundbreaking is set for 3:00 p.m. at the construction site.

Officials say they hope to have the hotel open by fall 2015.
