Site work begins on new Evansville arena

The demolition of the former Lopp & Lopp in downtown Evansville is the first big step toward a new arena.

The construction of a new downtown Evansville arena became a very real thing last week, when demolition of the former Lopp & Lopp law offices began.

The building is one of two slated to go to make way for the new facility. Demolition of part of the Executive Inn will take place after the Lopp & Lopp building is cleared.
