Groundbreaking set for Washington Commons project
Officials from the city of Washington and Daviess County will Thursday morning break ground on a $3.1 million project that developers say will help revitalize the downtown area. The Washington Commons project will create an outdoor gathering space that will include multiple pavilions and a performing arts stage.
