The city of Paducah will be intermittently closing the floodwall openings at Broadway Street and Kentucky Avenue beginning today to allow crews to repair damage to the riverfront.

Damage occurred during the docking of riverboats during recent high river stages on the Ohio River. Paducah's Engineering-Public Works Department has secured contractors to repair the concrete and deliver loads of rip-rap to fill portions of the riverbank.

Crews hope to complete the work today, though the project may extend into Thursday.

Questions can be directed to the Engineering-Public Works Department at 270-444-8511.
