Transient Dock Under Construction at Riverfront
By West Kentucky Star Staff
PADUCAH, KY - The transient dock is currently under construction at Paducah's riverfront.
Paducah's City Engineer and Public Works Director Rick Murphy says the 340-foot long, 20-foot wide dock is being constructed at the foot of Broadway because it's a convenient spot, but once assembly is complete the dock will be floated to its pre-determined location.
In addition to the frame, plumbing and wiring for gasoline, diesel fuel, electricity, water, sewer pump-out, and fire water are also being installed.
Ameneties on the dock will include nine lighted pedestals with electricity, city water, and sewer pump-outs for inboard or outboard boats.
Officials hope the dock will be in use by late March or early April.
