Preparations Start Monday for Executive Inn Demolition

Pam Spencer, Information Officer, City of Paducah

by AQS Staff

October 1, 2010, PADUCAH, KY—On Monday, October 4, City of Paducah floodwall crews will be installing the floodgate located in the floodwall opening at the intersection of Executive Boulevard and North 3rd Street. The installation of the floodgate is due to security reasons not due to any type of flood threat. The floodwall opening at Executive Boulevard and North 3rd Street is only feet away from the Executive Inn structure. Blocking the access in that location will help keep the public and contractors safe during the demolition of the Executive Inn.

The hotel liquidation process wraps up this weekend. Demolition preparations, including the floodgate installation, begin Monday. Also on Monday, fencing will be installed around the perimeter of the Executive Inn and at the other floodwall openings. Schultz Park will remain open during demolition.

For the first few weeks, the demolition process will be invisible to the public since work will be concentrated on the hotel interior and along the wall that connects the hotel to the Julian Carroll Convention Center. The hotel will be severed from the Convention Center with the Convention Center receiving a new exterior wall. The demolition of the Executive Inn will be completed by the end of March 2011.
