Murphysboro hotel expected to break ground in early May

Posted: Updated:

MURPHYSBORO -- The developer of a proposed hotel in Murphysboro gets a step closer to finishing the project.

The hotel will go where the old Apple Tree Inn used to be on the corner of Route 13 and 127.

Mayor Will Stephens said the developer plans to break ground on the new hotel in early May.

"The plans are complete and he's planning on going out to bid with those here within the next few weeks and once that bid is awarded (to a contractor), then there may be a groundbreaking ceremony," Stephens said, adding that the bidding process could take around 60 days.

Stephens said the developer has been talking to a few fast food places to build there as well. He also said the developer has raised the elevation of the property so flooding from the Big Muddy River shouldn't be as much of a concern.
