LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Big changes are coming to a major MSD project near Cherokee Park.

MSD says it will no longer need to build a retention basin at Lexington Road and Grinstead Drive at the site of the old Jim Porter's building. 

MSD bought the property for $5 million back in 2015. 

Instead, MSD says it plans to extend a massive tunnel from downtown that is 18 stories underground, instead of building the basin. 

More information about the change is expected to be released sometime Monday morning.
