Golconda Marina to Re-open in Stages

State of Illinois

A southern Illinois lawmaker says a popular area hangout should re-open soon.
In a written statement, State Senator Dale Fowler flooding on the Ohio River forced the Golconda Marina to close because of damage to the structure. But, he says repairs to the marina are scheduled to start soon and the facility will re-open in phases as the work is completed. Fowler says this will allow boat owners to access their boats.

“While the flooding damage was unexpected and a setback for the Marina, I’m encouraged to see swift repairs beings made to the property. Work and maintenance to our state parks and facilities are truly an investment in the future of Southern Illinois, attracting visitors and boosting tourism," said Fowler.
