Construction Starts On Downtown Park Projects

People in downtown Hopkinsville will see construction crews near the library and the parks as construction is slated to begin on the downtown and Inner-City Park Improvement Project this week. Hopkinsville Mayor Dan Kemp says for safety reasons, the parks will be closed to the public during construction, which is scheduled to begin Monday in Westside Park and the Hopkinsville-Christian County Public Library Amphitheatre Park. The parks will remain closed until further notice.

Scheduled work at Westside Park includes the installation of a pedestrian bridge to connect with the Hopkinsville Greenway System 5K Rail Trail project, installation of historic decorative lighting and additional benches. Work at the Library Amphitheatre includes renovation of the amphitheatre, installation of historic decorative lighting and benches, landscaping, and installation of lighting along the downtown riverwalk between the amphitheatre and the pedestrian bridge.

Future construction involves improvements at Virginia Park, Peace Park, the Sudden Service Station, and the Walnut Street Center Park. Kemp says the public will be notified about the temporary closures closer to the work starting.

Design and engineering work has been provided by M2D/Element Design of Lexington and Bell Engineering of Hopkinsville, while construction will be undertaken by Southwinds Contracting of Hopkinsville and Scott and Murphy of Bowling Green.
