Decatur – Ceremonial shovels used for groundbreaking are getting another workout Friday in Decatur.
The Greater Decatur Chamber of Commerce has scheduled a groundbreaking for Akorn, a local pharmaceuticals company, at 150 South Wyckles road for Friday morning at 11am.
The groundbreaking is just the latest in a series of new construction projects that are coming to the city. In recent weeks the city broke ground on a new Holiday Inn & Suites, Hampton Inn and a major downtown renovation at FirsTech.
The exact nature of the construction project at Akorn will be announced Friday.
