VINCENNES, Ind. (WTHI) - A project to demolish grain bins in Vincennes will soon be underway.

That's as the state granted approval to a contractor to build apartments in their place.

The Riverview Loft Apartments will be along the Wabash River.

Officials put a halt to the project this summer when they learned the grain silos were considered a piece of history to the city.

The Indiana Historic Preservation Board has approved the demolition work.

They say demolition crews must work with a historic preservation board to look for anything that's important to Vincennes history.

Demolition work is expected to start by the end of the year.
