EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) - The Owensboro Riverport Authority is getting ready to celebrate the opening of a new dock.

The rope cutting ceremony will take place around 5:30 p.m. Wednesday.

The new cargo dock is located at mile marker 759 on the Ohio River.

Officials say it was designed and built above the 100 year flood plain and it will play a key role in supporting long term economic growth for the future.
