LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - The whimsical Louisville Clock is being moved back to storage to make room for a construction project downtown.

The Courier-Journal (https://cjky.it/1dI41nq ) reports the clock will be taken to a warehouse until a permanent location can be found.

It’s at least the fourth time the clock has been moved. It languished in disrepair for a decade before a nearly complete rebuild funded by businessman Adam Burckle and his Adam Matthews Foundation. But now it has been inoperative for months.

Burckle says the clock should be “cherished, preserved and proudly displayed.”

Louisville Downtown Partnership Executive Director Rebecca Matheny says she’s confident the clock can be safely moved.

The clock features five iconic figures - Daniel Boone, Thomas Jefferson, King Louis XVI, George Rogers Clark and the Belle of Louisville - that race around a tilted clock face designed by the late artist Barney Bright.
