MSD eliminates need for basin project at former site of Jim Porter's
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.
