The Evansville Redevelopment Commission has approved a $3 million walkway connecting a downtown casino and hotel. The walkway would let people visit Casino Aztar and Le Merigot Hotel without having to go outside.
According to our partners at the Evansville Courier-Press, the lease between the city and casino required that a walkway be built by 2012, but casino leaders have decided to start the project early. The casino’s general manager says the project would also create a safer walk to nearby restaurants.
